Hello Win 7 x64
I think this is a form of networking but if I should be in sodtware, kindly switch me to that forum.
I have watched videos and read helps about the above but to no avail.
I want to be able to work on a file or folder on my win 7 x64 desktop while at my win 7 x64 laptop.
On the Computer page, it says,on the left, I have a homegroup.
I have set 'advanced' settings as enable for network discovery, file sharing and most of the items including password.
When asked for the password I enter the one I made but when I click 'join' it won't work. I checked on the password and it is correct. To be sure I used the one windows generated.
I have the settings for both pcs the same.
Can someone please help me get this started so I do not have to put data in a flashdrive and bring it to the other pc?
I know you need two pcs running win 7 and there are workarounds but would like to utilize homegroup and file sharing as a learning process and to work on the other machines's files.
My skill level above novice and maybe intermediate and I spent hours before coming to you as I took the challenge personally to no avail.
