How do I set up something like "homegroup" in win10 since they removed it. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to be able to share files between PCS both e/net and wifi.  Since the win10 upgrade I can't even see any of our other PCS in my network map. All it shows are my media devices (DISH Hopper, BluRay, etc.) Why on earth would they remove usability from windows?

    Make sure the following services have started and running as following:

    Function Discovery Discovery Resource Publication  (Running) (automatic)

    UPnP Device Host service  (Running) ( manual)

    Computer Browser (Running) (Manual)
