    Nearby Sharing Issues


    Greetings,


    I am experiencing a very tricky issue with a brand new Lenovo L480 (thinkpad).

    I have a fresh Win10 install, with all the newest updates, however the device does not accept files through nearby sharing (I can send them, I can't receive them).


    My laptop is not even discoverable by others in the sharing UI, however it is discoverable as a Bluetooth device.

    Network is set to private and all sharing options are enabled. I am not really sure what could I be missing?


    It seems strange, that the transfer works one way only.


    Perhaps anyone has experience with this?

    :)

    Open Action Center (Windows key + A).
