    MICROSOF: BRING BACK WORKGROUPS -- I cannot access my workgroup computer!


    10.10.2019

    =======


    Before Version 19.03 I could work access my workgroup computers. Then I recieved another update and, since then, I have no longer access to any workgroup computers.



    I have tried all of the tips shown internet on this problem (making sure auto discovery is set etc etc) and killed the old

    sharing and re-shared - all to no avail.


    Apparently this is due to MS wanting us to us cloud data bases.


    @MICROSOFT: Under no circumstances do I want to put my Data in a cloud. Especially in America that does not have the

    stringent data protection as in the EU.


    Can some one please assist , I need that workgroup connection!


    Thank you.

    After KB4058043, cannot access workgroup


    Everything was working until I installed KB4058043. I do not know if that was a coincidence or not, but after the reboot, I cannot access any of the computers on my workgroup. I do use Kaspersky anti-virus (reinstalled it just in case).

    I do see this:

    Internet is working on all of the computers.

    Suggestions?

    MICROSOF: BRING BACK WORKGROUPS -- I cannot access my workgroup computer!

    Home Workgroup

    Hi all,

    Trying to connect to my computer at from my cell phone, (I did it before) BUT this time, I forgot the username or the password.

    At home, I clicked on Leave workgroup and restarted my computer.

    I created new workgroup, but it will not ask me for a password.

    I thought by doing so, I would create a new workgroup and a new password. It didn't work.

    What would you advise me to do?

    Did I miss a step or am I doing it the wrong way?

    Your help is very appreciated.
