joining desktop pc to Homegroup

  realist 21:34 11 Aug 2017

Windows 8.1 Tablet sees Windows 7 Desktop but not vice versa. Although Desktop is showing as joined to Homegroup the tablet does not show up in Windows Explorer? When I try to turn "network discovery" ON at desktop it reverts to OFF every time. What am I doing wrong?

Answering my own post! To solve this issue goto control panel - admin tools- services - right clock "ssdp discovery" - goto properties and set to auto - then goto "upnp device host" and do the same - you should now be able to turn on network discovery - restart all your devices including your router.
