  1. Missing domain for Workgroup


    I have put my comuter into a Workgroup but it doesn't have a domain. I don't know how to create or find a domain for the Workgroup, This is causing me problems with Windows. What do you think I am missing here, and how would I correct it in your opinion? Thanks!

  2. Windows 'domain'?

    Hello,

    Thank you for sharing your concern in the Microsoft Community. Follow these steps to find the domain name:

    • Press the Windows key + R then choose System.
    • The name of your computer will be listed as the Full computer name.
    • The domain your computer belongs to will be listed as the Domain. If, instead of Domain, you see Workgroup, your computer
      is not a member of any domain.

    If you have any questions or things you'd like to clarify, feel free to ask.

    No domain, it is just WORKGROUP

    How can I share an e-portfolio if my computer does not belong to any domain, it is just a WORKGROUP?

    Thanks
