That's right, they are not seen in HOMEGROUP because I removed HOMEGROUP from under the sharing tab. I can't access the files over the network, however, under WORKGROUP for some unknown reason, even though I have specified the User Account under the Sharing tab, AND the same User Account and Password can access the file locally. [Scratching head].
Run on server: fsmgmt.msc
Click on tab "sessions" . Now you see who's connected and under what logon name. Check it please. Of course there must be a valid session to see it. So share it with "Everyone" first (NTFS security as well). Later remove "Everyone"
I ran fsmgmt.msc after I put "Everyone" in two of the files. I looked at Sessions and Open Files and saw all the remote PC's listed and the correct files opened. All of the PC's were in Homegroup at the time, so I saw the computer name and "HomeGroupUsers$ listed. I then took one of the PC's out of Homegroup--call it PC1 (its the PC that has the two User Accounts and the one I have been having the permission problem with). I put "Everyone" in the file shares and permissions. I then ran fsmgmt.msc again. All the PC names and User Accounts were listed again, some under HomegrupUsers$ and others not, and in the Open File tab, the file which PC1 opened was listed.

Finally, I removed "Everyone" from the share and permissions and just listed in the two files' share and permissions a specific User Account on PC1 to have full access. I ran fsmgmt.msc a third time and POOF! the computer name, the User Account and even the file name were gone and not listed under the Sessions and Open File tabs. No files were listed under the Shares tab. That shouldn't happen, right? I know by running fsmgmt.msc that the remote computer (PC1) is being recognized by the server and the User Account is logging in, but they are only doing so when I put "Everyone" in the shares and permissions. I should be able to have the same result with a specific permission designation and not placing "Everyone" in the shares or permissions, right?

The following procedure should work to allow access to one folder for one user which you then map as a network drive.
Transfer Files Between a Windows 8 PC and a Windows 7 PC

Not sure where you are with this but it shouldn't be taking this long.

Like you say on your signature line "relentless patience."

Your approach may solve the problem, I didn't think of doing it that way--I will try it tonight. But even if the problem is solved, I would still like to know why I am having difficulties setting permissions to exclude one user account, especially when the user account log on disappears when I remove "Everyone" and just leave the specific user account designation in it. I even tried leaving "Everyone" in and narrowing down the specific user account designation to just "read" and that didn't have any effect either. The User Account still had full control.
