    sharing files between computers.


    Let me be clear. I have a windows 7 computer and a windows 10 computer, I'm having a hideous time trying to share files between the computers, (I DO NOT WANT TO USE AN ONLINE FILE SHARING SYSTEM TO SHARE THE FILES.) I.E. Onedrive.

    both computers are on the same network

    both computers on in the same workgroup

    Network discovery is turned on, both computers

    file and printer sharing is ON - both computers

    sharing so anyone with network access can read and write files in the public folders is turned on - both computers

    128 bit encryption is turned on - both computers

    password protected sharing is turned off both computers

    allow windows to manage homegroup connections is turned on in the windows 7 computer

    I am NOT using after market virus protection, I am using windows defender.

    I have shared the C drive of both computers and changed permissions to everyone.


    The windows 10 computer does not see the windows 7 computer at all

    The windows 7 computer can see the windows 10 computer but I cannot open the directory. ("make sure the computer or device is turned on and connected to the network") Duh, it's showing up in the network computer list, so It's obviously turned on and connected to the network, it's just a crappy operating system that is locking me out of the network drive.


    Since some A.-hole did away with home group, How do I get this to work?

    :)

    transfer files between computers on a home network


    I don't know why this is so hard to do but I would like to transfer files between a desktop PC running windows 10 pro and a laptop running windows 10 home. I would like to transfer files in both directions. Both computers are on the same home network and are connected wirelessly.

    Could some one provide either specific step by step instructions on how to do this (I googled and found a countless list of instructions that don't work)

    or a link to a reference.

    Thanks,

    I don't know if this is possible but it would be nice to see the computer sending the desired file in the explorer file manager of the computer receiving the desired file and then under the computer see a list
    of shared files and folders.

    Again, this seems like such a reasonable way of sharing files and folders. Shouldn't there be a simple way to do this?

    Steam Game Sharing?

    Gaming articles on Engadget

    This sounds pretty awesome, if true. There are a lot of old games I don't play that I'd be willing to share with friends, and there are some that I'd want to play but not sure about actually buying as well.

    Cannot access shared network drive


    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!
