How to disable network credentials in Windows 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello,

    I recently updated my PC (Windows 8.1 Single language) to be upgraded to Windows 10. I am also connected to a workgroup. the other PC is using Windows 10. However, after updating my PC, it is always asking for the network credentials whenever I try to connect to the other PC. I have never used any password for this before and I don't understand why it's asking for one now. I have also tried everything for a solution and it never worked at all. Now I am afraid to upgrade my current PC to Windows 10 as it may have the same problem.So please help as I really need these computers to be connected in order to do my work as it is greatly affecting my work. Thank you.

  • Hi Kuala,

    >>However, after updating my PC, it is always asking for the network credentials whenever I try to connect to the other PC.

    What do you mean by saying connect to?

    If mstsc.exe, I suppose it is a normal behavior. Remote connecting needs the effective username and passwords.

    If you mean connecting to a share, we could check the permission of the share.

    Best Regards,
