Can't access shared folders on Windows 7 from Windows 10

After upgrading one Windows 7 PC to Windows 10 in my home, it cannot access the shared folders on my other Windows 7 computers. They are on the same workgroup and I can see the Windows 7 computer in the Windows 10 File Explorer. I get the error "Windows cannot access \\computername error code: 0x80070035".

The Windows 7 computer however is able to access the shared folders in the Windows 10 PC. The Windows 7 computers on the same network can access each other's shared folders and files. All the Windows 7 computers are set to boot without any logins. I have set the Windows 10 computer to not ask for the login on starting. I would like to access my computers on the network through the same workgroup rather than using homegroup.
