All three of the devices on my small network running on Windows 10 tell me there is a homegroup I can join. None of them seems to be the 'home' PC. I can only think I set it up on a previous PC which I no longer have. How can I cancel this phantom homegroup so that I can set up a proper one for my three devices?
Thanks for your reply, but my problem is that none of them are currently members of the homegroup - all three of them just get an invitation to join the homegroup that has been set up - but I have no idea of the password. As I no longer have the original 'host' of the homegroup, I cannot see how to find that password, but because it is still floating in the system somehow, nor can I set up a new one. (Maybe I have exacerbated the problem because I called my new PC by the same ID as its predecessor)
I don't have that option. The only options I have are 'Join now', 'Change Advanced Sharing Options' 'Start the Homegroup Troubleshooter' When I do that I am told it might b a networking problem, but when I then troubleshoot the network it comes up with nothing.
I have tried sharing files over the network, but although that works well in some directions, in others I can only see the Default user folders - which are empty.
Thanks for your attempts, Procrastinus. Could you point me to a link which would give me details of how to set up file sharing of documents via the network. I have been tweaking settings in File Explorer, in Network and Sharing centre... and I may have set up conflicts there. As I said, it seems to work in some directions, but in others I can only access the Default user. Is there a site / document which simply lists how these should be set...?
