Sharing files with Windows XP (Computer & Hardware Questions)

by Help Desk, Tuesday, August 14, 2012, 23:01 (2410 days ago) @ Diane

In order to see the new computer you need to have both PCs in the workgroup unless you enter the "old" computer's IP address in an address bar of a folder or in the run box. Example: \\

When trying to view the old computer's shared files through Network Places both computers need to be in the same workgroup. To check that go to Windows "Help and Support" option under the Start tab and search "workgroup". Look for "Specify computer and workgroup names". Hope this helps.
