I am logged in to my local account. The article above is no help. All of those things had already been tried. I can access the internet. I cannot communicate with my three computers. They are mapped to drives"Q", "P" and "S"Hi ottiliegirl,
are you logged in using a local account or your MS account?.
Take a look here, it may help?:
I believe this is close to what needs to be done but it did not work. Somehow I have lost the permissions. How do I get them back. The message I get now reads "Windows cannot access \\patspurplepc\ottiliegirl\. You do not have permission. " I had permission before upgrading to 1803. By the way this happens every time there is an upgrade.The update may have defaulted your password permissiions.
Have a look in Settings - Network and Internet
Click on "Sharing Options"
Click on "All Networks"
Turn off "password protected sharing"
See if it works for you
...as so many other suggestions - this too has NOT worked for me, or rather "I have done all of that" and Network between 2 win10pro (64) PCs never came back to live. Shame on MS for changing (a) my most elementary settings back to (their) Standard and (b) for disappearing HOME- or other NET-WORK's automatic recognition without CLEAR instructions as to how to repair that anomaly; or rather: WTH would MS fiddle with something so normal and essential for a home network and expect us THE USERS to go through tons of forum suggestions, which often just resemble what was on our 2 (two!) PCs to begin with?!Press the Windows and "R" keys simultaneously, type "services.msc" into the "Run" box and click "OK". Find the following two services and make sure they are set to start automatically. If they aren't, right-click them, select "Properties" and change them. You may have to restart the computer for the change to take effect.
