Windows 10 upgrade: file and network sharing



  • I´m pretty sure many of you have faced issues with network file/printer sharing after an upgrade to Windows 10, a very common issue is to have your network and file sharing restricted or in most cases invisible to other devices on your network, or restricting the acces to previous files/folders/printers shared on it.

    To solve this there are a few workarounds on internet, related to but I´ve recently experienced that any of them helped me with a program which share files on network (images). On next I share a simple, but powerful action:

    1. Run services.msc
    2. Find FUNCTION DESCOVERY PROVIDER HOST and change it values to Automatic (Delayed Start) - Start - Apply
    3. Find FUNCTION DESCOVERY RESOURCE PUBLICATION and change it values to Automatic (Delayed Start) - Start - Apply
    4. Close and Restart Windows.

    Hope this helps...!



  • Thanks
