WIN 10 Can't Share Folders Drives or PC over local network!
« on: January 09, 2019, 12:47:56 PM »
Everything that was simple to with windows 7, share E: drive turn file sharing on in option and remove password... voilą
I find e: drive on my other PC, my android phone's file explorer, can acces my pc's ip address with foobar2000 controller on my cellphone and choose what is playing from my pc in another room, i could also easily find my pc as a server and use Unified Remote as a remote control .....
None of the above are possible since i switched to windows 10.

Please help me, my pc does not have automatic wifi cause its a desktop, but it has a rooter (d-link dir 822) I have tried many steps but i really want my pc to be seen my other devices and thing works so far

by the way the unified remote and foobar2000 was solved within minutes, I figured out that i was on a guest wifi network :P

The shared PC drives on another PC are still not findable

Of possible interest, some routes have a USB port will allow sharing.
Look at this:
