Click on homegroup where it says "ready to create" and follow instructions - if that wont work click change advanced settings on the left, and try these settings :

Homegroup - Create

1 turn on network discovery
2 turn on file and printer sharing
3 turn off public folder sharing (----)
4 media streaming up to you
5 use 128 encryption
6 turn off password protected sharing
7 use user accounts and sharing to connect to other computers

If you want to share a printer it needs enabling on the host machine in devices and printers (control panel) - right click printer - printer properties - sharing - tick share this printer
