Instructions for sharing files without HomeGroup on Windows 10


Although HomeGroup is not a feature available on Windows 10, you can still share files as before, just follow the steps below. On Windows 10, HomeGroup has used the feature to simplify the process of sharing resources and files with network users. However, when I released the Windows 10 version 1803 update. Microsoft dropped this feature and as a result you will not find the settings to use HomeGroup anymore.
Instead, Microsoft wants you to use features like Share, Nearby sharing, OneDrive, and more advanced options for sharing files, providing a formal way of experience, but using a different installation guide. .

3. Access and change shared content when needed
If the user has logged in using the same username and password as the login information in the device sharing the folder, you do not need to login again to access the shared folder. However if you receive a message to log in you must enter the login information of the account in the shared computer folder.
Users can use "Network" from the File Explorer panel on the left to browse computers and access shared folders and content. When sharing folders in the network, users can only access files if the shared computer has turned on and is connected to the network.
Good luck!
