  1. Nearby sharing


    I am attempting to share files between a desktop and laptop using nearby sharing option.

    Everything seems to function as designed except do not get a prompt from either computer to accept file transfer.

    I see the device I am attempting to share to and when I select it, prompt says waiting for response. Nothing ever shows on receiving computer.

    Same problem using either computer to share.


    Nearby sharing and Bluetooth turned on, both machines. (Both 1803)


    Help! Thanks

    :)
