So for an early Christmas present I got myself a shiny new Dell. I know, I know, and I used to build my own. Right up to this one. Sadly it is now cheaper to buy a pre-built so I gave in. So far the computer is just great, but Win10 has me pulling my hair out.
All of my other computers in the house are Win7. I have them linked with Windows "homegroup." The printer (an HP from 1999 that still works great, yes I am a cheap bastard) is physically connected to another computer in the house. I could print from anywhere through the homegroup link. Now, I can't do squat. The new Dell sees the other computers but won't or can't talk to them. (It also sees my phone and TVs with its own Bluetooth. Yikes.) I need an easy way to resolve this so I can quickly transfer files from the old to the new and be able to print from the new. I know what the easy solution is for the printer (buy a new one with WiFi capability) but I still need it to talk with the other PCs in the house. I've read a few articles about the loss of homegroup in Win10 on the MS site but none of it seems to be of much help. All helpful advice considered and thanks in advance!
