One computer is the main one (Windows 10, set as Master Browser), the other one is XP.

i have never been able to get an xp to share files with any other windows version, except xp with xp

I've never found Microsoft's simple file sharing to be something that was easy to get working, I always use the advanced sharing. To truly understand sharing and security is a two day block of instruction.
1. Create an account on all machines involved with the same account name and password. If you want to have different types of access, i.e. one account with Read and one account with Read and Write create an account for each need on each machine with the same password.
2. Right click the folder you want to share and select Properties.
3. Switch to the Sharing tab and press the Advanced Sharing button.
4. Check the Share this folder box.
5. Name the share, ideally something without spaces as spaces tend to cause issues.
6. Set your permissions. Read allows viewing of the items in the folder. Change allows adding, changing, and deleting items in the folder. Full Control should not be needed. Normally you only add the users or groups that you want to have access.
7. You can also set permissions on the security tab. Never, ever, use the Deny permission. If you do not have permission you do not have access. Using Deny causes more problems than it solves. People will have the least amount of access of the combination of Share access and Security. Think of Share rights as remote rights and Security as local rights. You may have full control if you're logged on to the machine locally, but if your Share rights are Read you will only be able to Read when connecting to the Share remotely.
