Remove homegroup password

I have a Win7 and a Win10 pc in a homegroup and I can share files etc.

I would like to demo to my mate how to set up a home network. How do I delete passwords etc and set everything back to square one, so I can show him how to set up a network ? If I switch from home to public and back, the password is still effective.

Hello wasnotwas, :)

You could leave the homegroup on each PC to start over.

Homegroup - Leave

Afterwards, create a homegroup on one PC, then john the homegroup on the other PC.

Homegroup - Create

Homegroup - Add Computer or Join
