    Why did Win 10 installer go on to network and put old wallpaper up?


    Hello,

    just bought a new laptop, and while installing win 10 updates, i noticed that the wallpaper changed to an old one that i had on my desktop PC a little while back (not present one).

    i didnt do anything to wallpaper or any settings (yet) as i'm still in the win 10 update progress, but what's going on here -- why did it do this (i.e. go to another pc on my network and use an old wall paper)?

    thx in advance

    :)

    Win 7 and Win 10 on network

    I have home network with separate modem, router, and WAP's. My Windows 7 computer does NOT list the Windows 10 computers on network computer list but the Windows 10 computers network list DO list the Windows 7 computer.

    Turned off firewalls, gave permissions, shared drives. Nothing allows Win 7 computer to access the Win 10 computers.

    Any suggestions for a fix?

    Win 7 and Win 10 on network

    Thank you. Troubleshooter did not work. I ran all the listed commands in order and that also did not work.

    None of the Windows 10 computers on my home network are on the network list of the Win 7 computer but the Lan connected windows 10 computer does show up on the Windows 7 computer network map.

    Any other fixes suggestions would be appreciated?

    Win 10 Network Printer Connection Problem

    I have tried, when using the wifi from a Win 7 computer to connect to the printer connected to it. Others can connect.

    I did do the three steps outlined:

    • Open File Explorer. Pick the "Network" icon from the left pane (navigation pane) of the file explorer UI.
    • If sharing is turned off you will see a pale yellow line towards the top of the window that states "Network Discovery is turned off. Network computers and devices are not visible. Click to change...".
    • Click this bar and select "Turn on network discovery and file sharing"

    None of the suggestion worked.

    I did notice that the PC I'm connecting to is 'Private' while I am listed as 'Public'.

    • Can this be causing the problem?
    • Are there other suggestions?

    I need to be connected to use the other printer so work flow can not be disrupted and someone else needs to print the file for me.

    I will be with this group again on Monday.

    Thank you.
