so you were using wifi previously?

In reply to: i could not find that

should have mentioned it. Wifi has to be setup with the wireless settings on a router, and even then, unless you've allowed wifi access to router settings program, you won't be able to do that except by cable. It's best to NOT allow wifi access to router's settings program.

Any LAN cable connect, since it's as local as it can get, allows access to find homegroups whereas the wifi may have AP set which is a privacy setting in wifi to not allow wifi devices to see each other. Since some are able to share data on wifi, then that setting likely isn't set on your router.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
