    Network Sharing prompts for password (Password protected sharing turned off) - Windows 10

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    As you’ve already turned off password protected sharing, this issue could be due to the incorrect cached credentials stored on the PC. I suggest you to try the steps listed below and check if it works.



    • Open Control Panel and categorize to view by
      small icons.
    • Click on User Accounts and choose your
      User Name.

    • On the left pane, click on Manage your credentials.
      Under Windows Credentials, remove the shared computer credentials and save the changes.
    • Exit Control Panel and restart the machine to see if the issue persists.


    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards,
