  1. Network sharing asking for network credentials


    I am trying to connect to other pc's on my home network and have turned off password protected sharing. I can see the other computer in file explorer, but when I click on it I am asked for "Network Credentials". I have entered the Microsoft username and password and the computer's login info. Neither option works - I get the message that "the user name or password is incorrect".


    In an effort to try another option, I clicked on the option "Connect with Remote Desktop Connection", I get the message that "Remote desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons: 1)Remote access to the server is not enabled 2)The remote computer is turned off 3)The remote computer is not available on the network" The computer is on, sharing is enabled and it is connected to the network....I can see it in File Explorer.


    Please help! I need to access the files on my other computer to move them to my new one.

    :)
