    I have 2 HP win10 1903

    I think I have all sharing options enabled on both PCs.
    Tight VCN works from either machine, but when trying to access the other PC from desktop, it keeps asking for network credentials.
    This is something new to me. Is there a way to disable this so it works as it did in the past?
    Also I don't see both PCs listed under networks using file explorer.
    thanks

    :)

    I could scream! so much time wasted on this stupid error, as if time is not precious enough!
    It probably would work fine if I could see the other computer! But I cannot see the other computer!
