Turn on SMB file sharing in windows 10 to fix network share connectivity

Unable to connect to network shares from windows 10...

One of the issues i had recently was being unable to browse shares on my local private network, my NAS is super old, and only supports a really old file sharing protocol, so to get my other devices to see this one in windows i had to do the following.

Check to make sure that SMB 1.0 is turned on. Open Control Panel and select Programs and Features and then Turn windows features on or off. Go down the list and make sure SMB 1.0/CIFS file sharing is checked. Restart using Start > Power > Restart.

Try again.

I guess you get the same response to your user and password whether you use a connection via a mapped drive or Networks in File Explorer.

Random CSS Property


The scroll-padding-bottom property defines offsets for the bottom of the optimal viewing region of the scrollport: the region used as the target region for placing things in view of the user. This allows the author to exclude regions of the scrollport that are obscured by other content (such as fixed-positioned toolbars or sidebars) or to put more breathing room between a targeted element and the edges of the scrollport.
