I am attempting to transfer all content from a Win10 machine to a Win7 machine. They are connected via a cable.

I go through the steps to allow them to recognize one another; I transfer one, small text file to test it.

On the Win7 machine, the other machine (Win10) seems to be displayed, but, as a media device only able to be opened via Windows Media Player. Why is this? When I attempt to open the text file it says I "need access" (?)

I may be doing something wrong.

Any help in general with this is appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi

Have you compared the settings in: Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings and made sure they are the same?

You need to turn off Password Protected Sharing.
