Windows 7: Homegroup and Domain Joined PC

Homegroup and Domain Joined PC

Hi Guys,

Apologies if this has been answered before ...

I have 5 pc's at home all running Win 7 Ultimate. 1 of the PC's (my laptop) is joined to my works domain.

The problem I am having is I can't get it to join the Homegroup when I am at home.

all I really need to be able to do is to access folders on each of the other pc's as and when needed (full access)

Is there any way to resolve this?

Many thanks for any help you can offer.

Paul

This page covers it pretty well. There are a couple of different methods you can use.

Note If your computer belongs to a domain, you won't be able to share files and printers with a homegroup, but you can still access files and printers shared by others.
