  1. LAN Issues - Suddenly can't access files on network pc


    Hello, For years I've been able to access my desktop from my laptop through my network. Click on the network, and there's my desktop. Easy. However, about a week ago my desktop suddenly started appearing as a media device on my laptop.

  2. Issues while accessing PC over the network

    Hi Cliff,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are facing issues while accessing the PC’s over the network. For further clarity on the issue, please respond to the questions below.



    1. Have you connected both the laptops to the same network through which the PC is connected?
    2. Which build version of Windows is installed on the PC’s?


    Refer the article
    Which version of Windows operating system am I running?




    Meanwhile, I would suggest you to try connecting the PC to the main router and see if you are able to access the laptops.



    If you are able to access the laptops, then we need to configure the network settings once again. You can refer the suggestions by

    Unable to share files in my LAN

    Hi all, I have two Windows 10 PC's in my home LAN (connected to same wired router). I would like to be able to transfer files between them. I have followed all steps in this guide and verified all requirements comply with it. When I open Windows Explorer and then click on Network in one PC I see the other PC listed, but when I double click on the PC I don't see any shared folder listed,not even the Public folder, instead I see the following error, any hint? Thanks
