    Sharing Win11-Win10 settings


    by bluenite1 ·


    When upgrading nb from Win10 to 11Home, sharing stopped working at 100%.
    I can get to the desktop pc as before, but not to the nb. It is a home network, nb is on wifi, pc on cable to router. Is it in some os setting that I’m not familiar with, or something similar? Sharing is set to all drives, with access for everyone. Or do all folders (or subfolders) have to be shared individually one at a time?
    Thanks for the advice on what to do.

      Let’s remember our basic Microsoft network courses here. “Everyone” are people with accounts either on the PC or Windows Server. It is not “everyone” connected to the network. Never has been!

      Now back in the day you could give access to “Guest” which would allow everyone on the network to access shares but those days are gone where that would work out of the box.

      So again, go back over your classwork on Microsoft network shares and accounts.

      Hi Peter,

      I understand that you’re having trouble sharing files between your laptop and desktop computer after upgrading your laptop to Windows 11 Home.

      There are a few things you can check to troubleshoot this issue:

      1. Make sure that file sharing is enabled on both computers. You can do this by going to Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Advanced sharing settings. Under File sharing, make sure that Turn on file sharing is checked.

      2. Make sure that the computers are on the same network. You can check this by opening a command prompt and typing ipconfig. The IP address of both computers should be in the same subnet.

      3. Make sure that the firewall on both computers is not blocking file sharing. You can disable the firewall temporarily to test if this is the issue.

      4. Try restarting both computers.

      Hope this might help!

      To share settings between Windows 11 and Windows 10, you can configure similar options in both operating systems:

      1. Windows Update settings
      2. Power and sleep settings
      3. Personalization (desktop background, themes)
      4. Privacy settings
      5. Display settings
      6. Sound settings
      7. Taskbar and Start Menu settings
      8. File Explorer options
      9. Network and Internet settings
      10. Backup and recovery options

      Although the settings are similar, note that there may be minor differences in the user interface and organization due to Windows 11’s updated look and feel. Always use the appropriate version for the most current options and features.
