  1. Is there an easy way to share files??


    Hello, I have 2 Win 10 Home machines sitting next to each other on a desk, both connected to the same wifi network.

    Is there an easy way to transfer files from one machine to the other??



    I've been using a flash drive because I have googled my brains out and cannot figure out how to make this 'simple' thing work.... I have 'shared' the desired folder on one machine, and can see it on the other, but cannot transfer files (like, what's the fucking point of sharing a folder if you can't transfer files??)



    HELP!!

    Ermmm, where are the files stored? Server or one of the machines you listed?

    Should be easy enough to help you through the forum, you may not need a help site.

  4. Is there an easy way to share files??

    File Sharing

    Hi Dwayne,

    The ability to share files within your homegroup can be set based on your preference in the HomeGroup settings. For us to identify if the file sharing issue is caused by the update or an option not being retained in the HomeGroup setting, we'd like to ask
    for additional details. Please answer the following:

    • Aside from installing an update, have you also made any recent changes to the HomeGroup settings?
    • What specific update have you installed before the file sharing stopped working? To check the Update history, follow these steps:
    • On the Search bar, type Settings.
    • Open the Settings app from the search result.
    • Click Update & security and check the Windows Update section.
    • Click the Update history link.
    • Have you already checked if the file and printer sharing is enabled in the
      Advanced sharing settings
      in the Control Panel?
    • What build and version of Windows 10 are you using?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried based on the threads that you've read?
    For initial troubleshooting, you can run the built-in troubleshooter for HomeGroup by following the steps below:

    • On the Search bar, type Troubleshoot.
    • Open the Control Panel from the search result.
    • Click View all and locate HomeGroup.
    • Click HomeGroup and follow the on-screen guide to run the troubleshooter.
    We hope to hear from you soon.
