thank you guys for quick response. So I created homegroup, all works fine. Last question, how can I add some folders for share in my homegroup please? For example, want to add C:\Users\Computer1\Desktop (want to read and write)

We have a tutorial for that too

Homegroup - Change File and Folder Sharing Settings

I might add, Go to Computer and right click on Desktop on the left. In the menu you will see "Include in Library"

Select which one you want it to be in IE. Documents, Videos, Pictures.. etc

Then Desktop will show up in that library. Then you can follow the tutorial and share the Desktop in homegroup
