HOME GROUP ISSUE with W10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • After installing W10 (or rather reinstalling it after having another problem) can't use HomeGroup, or network in order to share my printer. 

    Printer is connected via Ethernet to PC, but with W8.1 used to be able to share it with all other computers on home network.Now impossible.

    The other computers are on W8.1 or W7

    Used to work perfectly, before W10. Are the other windows version sincompatible with W10, for this?

    It detects the printer I want to join on network, (I can use the printer on the main computer as it is connected by wire, not wifi) but then tells me impossible.

    What do I have to do?

    How do you completely eliminate network, in order to restart a new one?

    How do you completely eliminate HomeGroup in odre to create new one?

    Many thanks

  • fORGOT TO MENTION, W10 doesn't let me share printer on Network either (without using HomeGroup)

    I saw somewhere I should delete network and start again and creat new one, but have no idea how that is done. Where to start?
