  1. Turn off/on password sharing doesn't exist


    I'm using windows 10 prof 32 bit and joining a domain.

    I'm trying to share printer and folders but everytime people trying to connect it, they need to enter user and password to access it. I know the way to fix it is by turning off the password sharing in the network sharing but the option to turn off / on password sharing in network sharing simply doesn't exist.

    Anyone know how to turn it off? thanks a bunch.

    :)

  2. How do I remove the network credentials password from Windows 10.

    You need to Turn off password protected sharing on the remote computer.

    Open Start > Settings > Network & Internet > Status

    Scroll to the bottom

    Click Network and Sharing Center

    Click Change advanced sharing settings

    Expand All Networks

    Under Password protected sharing

    Switch between 'Turn on password protected sharing and Turn off password protected sharing'

    Then choose 'Turn off password protected sharing'

    Then click 'Save changes'

    Hi Joan

    Thanks for your reply.

    Change Advance Sharing Settings

    Tabs weren't as you described but everything turned on except Network Discovery which I turned on and Password Protected Sharing which I left turned off

    Still doesn't work

    Right click on the network icon and select Network and Sharing Center. Then click Advanced Sharing Options on the left. The setting should be at the All networks section, scroll down to find it.

  5. Hey, thanks for the response.

    I can't find it anywhere. There's no "Password protected sharing" options under the "All networks" profile.
    Anything I can get around to make this appear ? or anything that can "turn off" this password protected sharing setting
    Thx

    Maybe there is a command that you can execute from an elevated Command Prompt or PowerShell, but I'm not familiar with these commands, sorry.

    Right click on the start button. Select Control Panel. Select Network & Sharing Center. Select Advanced Sharing Settings. Page down to All Networks and expand that. At the bottom is selection for Password Protected Sharing.

    Its on all the Window 10 machines in my house I should think its on yours.

    Examine carefully all options in Advanced Sharing. You may have to expand stuff to reveal the password setting.

  9. Hey guys, thanks for the reminder.

    Yeah, I did and I have expanded everything.
    Turn on everything, network discoveries, file and printer sharing, but that option (Password Protected Sharing) just doesn't exist.

    I'll try to post the screenshot later on tomorrow once I got to my office.

    Would it mean that some Windows features are not enabled? In that case, you have to go at Control Panel, Programs and Features, Turn Windows Features on or off and check the box to enable the relevant feature. Don't know which one it is. Anyone else?

    In case you are looking at the wrong place, here is the Advanced Sharing Settings window in my computer:

    It's probably got something to do with being on a Domain. Apparently that is something you can't do in that environment.

    Turn off/on password sharing doesn't exist

    Yes, if you are in a domain then you shouldn't allowed to connect to shared resources without a password.
