    How To Network?


    I couldn't log into a machine on the Lan from another machine on the same Lan.

    I couldn't understand this because I was absolutely sure of the username and the password.

    Checked on that machine with cmds whoami and query user and got the username I was using.

    But the system kept telling me I had an invalid username or password.

    So I created another admin user on that machine and didn't log him in but went back to the machine I'd started this from and tried again to log in.

    This time I was apparently successful. Because no error messages at all.

    But neither does it show any folders. No directory tree at all. Windows Explorer just say 'this folder is empty'.

    And no indication of how I can log that user out and have another go with some other username.

    No sign of the shared folders. Nothing.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I can see that maybe that new user has no user files yet. But shouldn't shared directories or something be visible?

    And is there no way to log in to a machine on the lan, as the lan administrator, and view everything on that machine - all user files, any user's files? Or folders at least?

    :)

    Did our Epson printer get hacked?

    Another question, is this on a home network or a work network? The steps @eidairaman1 listed are always a good first step. If this is on a work network you manage, I'd be much more concerned than the home one. It is possible someone is screwing with you, but malware could also be the culprit.

  3. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.

    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
