Network File Sharing Difficulty

Recommended Posts

Once upon a time there was this thing called the Homegroup and my 3 PCs could all talk to each other and share files. Now the Homegroup is gone and I can't share a darn thing.

I've looked for help on MS site bu the things they recommend haven't helped. Anyone have words of wisdom they can share?

The goal is for me to be able to access files on any of the computers from and of the computers. Sharing whole drives would be best.

TIA

I've always skipped Homegroup and did with the hard way. If you don't care about security this will be fast. Also If you are in windows 10 it is a little easier than Win 7. 

Under "This Computer" where all the drives are located. Right click on the drive you want to share and click properties. Now go to the sharing tab, click "advanced sharing" and setup the drive how you like.

Thanks y'all! I finally got it sorted. There were settings in services.msc I needed to change and then I could see the computers. Only then was I able to share them. What a PIA
