Network sharing issue


New Member
I am running a peer to peer win 10 network. I have one of my computers (A) that can access the other (B) through explorer, but when I try to save a new doc or open one through the dialogue box to that computer (B) I cannot find it in my network folder. What am I missing? I can open any file off of (B) from (A) through an existing shortcut and all of my permissions appear good.

Thank you,

Well it would be \\computername but most home networks won't have internal DNS so you'll need to do \\ipaddress
