I have two computers working on Windows 7 that are directly connected to each other via an Ethernet cable utilising Windows Sharing and all works fine.


However, I have two other computers on Windows 10 that are also directly connected to each other vian an Ethernet cable and I cannot get them to see each other.

All the settings are the same as the Windows 7 devices but there may be something different in Windows 10 that makes what was a very simple process now more difficult.


Has anyone out there successfully got two windows 10 devices connected and found if there is some subtle setting that I am missing.
