|My two Windows 10 Pro 64bit, PC's appear to be set up as follows:|
"My company uses a network with a domain" NOTE: this PC is a home network with NO domain defined; only a WORKGROUP.
I change the radio button to "My company uses a network without a domain"; I click NEXT and FINISH, and while it appears to have taken the change by telling me to reboot, in fact it did not take the change because the original radio button (My company uses a network with a domain) is still selected. It refuses the change even as I'm logged on as Administrator.
Furthermore, if I leave the radio button as is and I hit NEXT, I receive another option. Now the following appears:
Select the option that best describes your network.
The option in effect is "This computer is part of a business network; I use it to connect to other computers at work"
Since this is NOT correct I change to the other option - "This is a home computer; it is not part of a business network"
Again while the change appears to be accepted, it is NOT because the original option (This computer is part of a business network; I use it to connect to other computers at work) is still checked. Of course I reboot as instructed by Windows to no affect.
The real problem this is causing me is that each time I reboot, my two Windows 10 Pro 64bit, PC's can no longer print to my two printers that are attached to a Windows 7 Pro 32 bit PC defined as SHARE mode. They display as NOT READY and when I attempt to view the properties in Control Panel I receive the error "Operation could not be completed error 0x00000005 - Access is denied." This occurs even as I'm logged on as Administrator.
My two Windows 10 Pro 32bit, PC's while defined the same way, they do not have any printing issue, nor is my ethernet connected true network printer affected.
I have had this same configuration since last May when I upgraded the four PC's (2 - 64 bit and 2 - 32 bit) to Window 10, however, for the past month I have been confounded and plagued with this problem.
