    Cannot see file shares on network

    Thank you all for your useful replies. I have been working on this for almost a week (on and off because each of the computers on the net is used a lot and I don't have access to them). I have set the Function Discovery services and the sharing settings on each computer exactly the same. I have...

    Cannot see file shares on network

    I have 4 PCs on my network, all running windows 10 (3 on 1803 and 1 on 1809). They are connected to a Netgear Dual Band router - 2 at 2.4 Ghz and 2 at 5 Ghz. Up until a few days ago, the network ran perfectly and I could share files from all computers in both directions. Now, I cannot only see...

    Microsoft Mail Problem

    Follow up: I waited a bit and restarted Windows and tried Mail again. It now opened with one of my accounts in the Welcome box. When I clicked go to inbox. I got back to the exact setup I had before we started.

    Microsoft Mail Problem

    I went to Store and reinstalled Mail. When I open it, I get a brand new screen with no accounts added. When I click on Add account, nothing happens! This is the exact behavior I had with Mail before I went through this resetting process. Apparently, there is something else wrong.

    Microsoft Mail Problem

    If I understand correctly, I ran the command and it returned a location. I pasted that path string in place of the path in the original PS you sent and ran it. This is what I got in response: PS C:\Users\kgash> Get-AppxPackage | ? { $_.Name -like "*commun*" } | select InstallLocation...

    Thank you for the suggestion. When I tried to rename the folder, I got the message that it can't rename because a file in it is open. How do I fix this?

    Problem with Windows Backup and Restore

    All of the suggestions have been good but none of them solved the problem. I have worked out a solution that is almost as good as the method I used to backup files with Windows7 Backup. I dug out a old program called EZBackitup which works very well in Windows 7 and is much easier to use than...

    Problem with Windows Backup and Restore

    Thanks for trying. I'll keep looking but unless someone who has already solved the problem tells me how, I am not very optimistic.
