I have an unattended computer with no keyboard or monitor that I use for dropbox and printer support for the rest of the computers in the house. I go to vacation for a week and all the sudden windows 10 is on my computer. I know this because I couldn't print. I go to the computer in time to agree to the new terms and conditions. I considered unplugging the computer right there but I was afraid windows 7 was already a goner and my files would be lost. So instead I let cortana have her way with me like the daughters of Lot and afterwords everything is everywhere like moving the furniture of the blind. I finally figure out the homegroup thing, which of course you can't search when you first install a new os and the indexes aren't rebuilt, and I put in the password for the right homegroup.
Now, I can see my windows 10 computer from all my other computers, but I can't access it because the computer insists on a username and password. I've never had to set a username and password before and my preference is never to set a new username and password because, 1. I don't know how, 2. I'm going to end up telling all my family members anyway, 3. I may forget it and 4. I trust my family members.
So my question is:
1. I've never set a username and password. What would the user name and password be? I've left it blank, but that failed. I wish I could send a pict because it shows a domain under the dialog box, and I've never done anything with a domain before and have no real interest learning about active directory. This is true whether I select the remote computer under workgroup or network
2. Is there a way to use a shared printer or access a volume on the windows 10 computer without a user name and password, and if so, how do I enable that feature. It was previously the default setting
3. Can I go back to windows 7 somehow? I never got a disc. It's in a mystery drive on my computer that will erase everything before I can install it
4. Is it evil to revel in Chris Paul's broken hand because God wanted to punish Steve Ballmer for windows 8? I know this is his doing because the new guy wasn't around long enough to have done this.
