ACCESSING A HOMEGROUP PRINTER FROM MY LAPTOP.BOTH ARE WIN7 64 BIT SP1?


What's a homegroup?

A homegroup is a group of PCs on a home network that can share files and printers. Using a homegroup makes sharing easier. You can share pictures, music, videos, documents, and printers with other people in your homegroup.
You can help protect your homegroup with a password, which you can change at any time. Other people can't change the files that you share unless you give them permission to do so.
After you create or join a homegroup, you select the libraries (for example, My Pictures or My Documents) that you want to share. You can prevent specific files or folders from being shared, and you can share additional libraries later.
HomeGroup is available in Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, and Windows 7. You can join a homegroup on a PC running Windows RT 8.1, but you can't create a homegroup or share content with the homegroup. In Windows 7Starter and Windows 7Home Basic, you can join a homegroup, but you can't create one.

Create a homegroup

  1. Open HomeGroup by typing homegroup in the search box on the taskbar, and then selecting HomeGroup.
  2. Select Create a homegroup > Next.
  3. Select the libraries and devices you want to share with the homegroup, and then select Next.
  4. A password will appear-print it or write it down. You'll need this password to add other PCs to your homegroup.
  5. Select Finish.
Notes
  • If a homegroup already exists on your network, you'll be asked to join it instead of creating a new one.
  • If your PC belongs to a domain, you can join a homegroup but you can't create one. You can get to libraries and devices on other homegroup PCs, but you can't share your own libraries and devices with the homegroup.
  • You can join a homegroup on a PC running Windows RT 8.1, but you can't create a homegroup or share content with the homegroup.
After you create a homegroup, other PCs running Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, or Windows 7 on your network can join it.

Add your other PCs to the homegroup

After someone on your network creates a homegroup, the next step is to join it. You'll need the homegroup password, which you can get from any homegroup member. All user accounts except the Guest account will belong to the homegroup. Each person controls access to his or her own libraries.
To join a homegroup, follow these steps on the PC that you want to add to the homegroup:
  1. Open HomeGroup by typing homegroup in the search box on the taskbar, and then selecting HomeGroup.
  2. Select Join now > Next.
  3. Select the libraries and devices you want to share with the homegroup, and then select Next.
  4. Type the homegroup password in the box, and then select Next.
  5. Note
    If you don't see a space to enter a password, there might not be a homegroup available. Make sure that someone has created a homegroup, or you can create a homegroup yourself.
  6. Select Finish.

Find homegroup files

PCs that belong to your homegroup will appear in File Explorer.
To get to shared libraries on other homegroup PCs
  1. Open File Explorer, by typing file explorer in the search box in the taskbar, and then selecting File Explorer.
  2. Under Homegroup, select the user account name of the person whose libraries you want to get to.
  3. In the file list, double-tap or double-click the library you want to get to, and then double-tap or double-click the file or folder you want.
Notes
PCs that are turned off, hibernating, or asleep won't be available as part of the homegroup.
If you've made homegroup files or folders available offline, and then you disconnect from the network, the files or folders will no longer be visible in the Libraries window. To find them, open the Network folder.

Share libraries and devices, or stop sharing them

When you create or join a homegroup, you select the libraries and devices you want to share with other people in the homegroup. Libraries are initially shared with Read access, which means that other people can look at or listen to what's in the library, but they can't change the files in it. You can adjust the level of access at any time, and you can exclude specific files and folders from sharing.
Only those people who belong to the homegroup can see shared libraries and devices. You can choose to share libraries, devices, or individual files and folders with specific people in your homegroup or with everyone.
Note
Keep in mind that children who use homegroup PCs will have access to all shared libraries and devices. To share devices and entire libraries
  1. Open HomeGroup by typing homegroup in the search box on the taskbar, and then select HomeGroup.
  2. Select Change what you're sharing with the homegroup.
  3. Select the libraries and devices you want to share with homegroup, and then select Next > Finish.
To share individual files or folders
  1. Open File Explorer by typing file explorer in the search box in the taskbar, and then selecting File Explorer.
  2. Select the item, and then select the Share tab.
  3. Choose an option in the Share with group. There are different Share with options depending on whether your PC is connected to a network and what kind of network it is.
    • To share items with a particular person, choose that person's account.
    • To share with all the members of your homegroup, choose one of the Homegroup options. (Select libraries to share with all the members of your homegroup by opening HomeGroup.)
    • To prevent a file or folder from being shared with anyone, select the Share tab, and then select Stop sharing.
    • To change the level of access to a file or folder, select the Share tab, and then select either Homegroup (view) or Homegroup (view and edit).
    • If you need to share a location such as a drive or system folder, select the Advanced sharingoption.

Share a printer

Printers that are connected with a USB cable can be shared with a homegroup. After the printer is shared, you can get to it through the Print dialog box in any program, just like a printer that's directly connected to your PC.
To share or stop sharing your printer with the homegroup
  1. Open HomeGroup by typing homegroup in the search box on the taskbar, and then select HomeGroup.
  2. Select Change what you're sharing with the homegroup.
  3. Next to Printers & Devices, select Shared or Not shared (this will be set to Shared by default).
  4. Select Next > Finish.
To print to a homegroup printer Open the Print menu of the app you want to print from (like Microsoft Word), select the homegroup printer, and then select Print.
Note
The PC that the printer is connected to must be turned on to use the printer.

Change homegroup settings if needed

At any time after you set up your homegroup, you can change settings by following these steps:
  1. Open HomeGroup by typing homegroup in the search box on the taskbar, and then select HomeGroup.
  2. Select the settings you want.
These are the settings you can change:
Setting Description Change what you're sharing with the homegroup Select the libraries, printers, and devices you want to share with your homegroup. Allow all devices on this network such as TVs and game consoles to play my shared content Use this setting to share content with all devices on your network. For example, you can share pictures with a digital picture frame, or share music with a network media player.
Note
Shared content isn't secure. Anyone connected to your network can receive your shared content. View or print the homegroup password View the password for your homegroup. If someone else wants to join the homegroup, give them this password. Change the password Change your homegroup password. All other PCs in your homegroup will need to type in the new password you generate. Leave the homegroup Leave your homegroup. You can't delete a homegroup, but if everyone leaves the homegroup it will be gone. You can then set up a new homegroup if you'd like. Change advanced sharing settings Change network discovery, file and printer sharing, HomeGroup connection, and advanced security options.

Make my Lexmark x5340 be wireless'


Is this a wireless printer? Is it being used for a large office or a small home type office? If you are using it for a home office and have multiple pcs, then you can setup a homegroup. A homegroup is like building your own personal small network. You will be able to share and print documents between your computers. Once you setup the homegroup, on one computer, then you will have to add the other computers to the group using the access code that the first computer will provide. Be sure to enable printer and file sharing when setting-up the homegroup. Once setup, you will be able to print your documents from any connected printer on your network. It's not wireless but it might help to solve a print sharing problem. Good luck. How To Set Up Homegroup Sharing Plus Printer Sharing

How do I fix my hp625 problem which ask for the password of its homegropuser$


Try this it comes from the windows help file on Windows 7
You should let Windows manage
your home network connections because it's the easiest and best way to share
files and printers.


But if you've previously set up customized sharing permissions on
your network following the procedures in Windows XP or Windows Vista and you want to maintain those
permissions when using a homegroup, you can choose to manage network connections
yourself. If you choose this option, you'll need to use your user account and
password when accessing other computers.


To continue using customized permissions, create or join a
homegroup, and then follow these steps:




  1. Click to open Advanced sharing settings.


  2. Click the chevron to expand the
    Home or Work network profile.


  3. Under HomeGroup connections, click Use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers,
    and then click Save changes.

HP1020 problem with a livebox and WIN7 configuration


I found it somewhat difficult to completely Unshare files and folders on my HomeGroup Network and still allow Printer sharing in Windows 7 (Home Premium).

Initial UnSharing still allowed files like those below to be viewed on other home network computers:

C:/Users/

{user x} (folder)

AppData (folder)

Default (folder

Public (folder)

desktop.ini (file)

Other computers on the home network could step through many levels of hiarchy in the AppData folder and appeared to have "Delete" access!!

To completely decouple the computers, I had to go through the following several different Sharing/Unsharing assignment locations, till I could completely break the linkage.

I would appreciate any clarifications or simplifications.

File UnShare Confusion on HomeGroup Network

There are several different Network Sharing/Protection assignment locations in Windows 7.

To prevent all sharing between computers on the Homegroup Network, but allow Printer Sharing:

1) Start->Control Panel ->Network and Sharing Center->Choose Homegroup and sharing options.

Uncheck sharing boxes that you don't want to share. Save changes.

2) Start->Control Panel ->Network and Sharing Center->Choose Homegroup and sharing options->Change advanced sharing settings.

Click "Turn off Public folder sharing (people logged on to this computer can still access these folders)".

3) Start->Control Panel ->Network and Sharing Center->Choose Homegroup and sharing options->Change advanced sharing settings.

Choose Media streaming options.

Click "Block All" button. Turn off. Click OK.

Anomaly Note: You have to close Control Panel and repeat all step 3 again for the change to take effect.

4) Open Windows Explorer.

a) Select "C:/", select "Users" folder with single click, then click "Share with" in toolbar.

b) Select Advanced sharing.

Under Sharing tab, select Advanced Sharing. Uncheck box labeled "Share this folder". Apply and close.

5) Open Windows Explorer.

Select "C:/Users/", select all folders and files under "Users", then click "Share with" in toolbar, then click "Nobody".

6) Verify success by going to other home network computer(s) and trying to access your files and folders. You should only be able to see there is a computer and not be able to see any folders of files.

Just bought a acer labtop can not get the hook up to computor


To network two computers you normally need a switch or a router to act as an intermediary between the two computers IF you still want both to have a functioning internet connection.

Otherwise, take your laptop and plug a Ethernet cable into the laptop and into the back of your computer tower.

I'm assuming you are using windows so go to control panel > network and sharing > Homegroup Options > Join now. This will set up a home network for the rest of the computers connected to share pictures music and other files. You will need to access the homegroup password from Control Panel > Network and Sharing > Homegroup Options. Take that password and add it in to your laptop under the Homegroup menu and you will see your laptop underneath the My Copmputer> Homegroup tab in the side panel. You can begin sharing files between them.

Can I use networking between the two computer, the one computer has the operating system which is windows XP while the other computer has the operating system which is the windows 7?


Yes you can network XP and 7 together. The trick to this is during network setup you have to change the workgroup name on your XP computer to match Windows 7. The default workgroup name on 7 is homegroup. Change the name to homegroup in XP. Next during network setup on your 7 computer when you reach the workgroup options the setup will generate a password to access your homegroup. Write this password down and don't lose it. It's kind of hard to retrieve if you misplace it (speaking from experience :) ) You should now be able to share your router and files. Hope this was helpful.

How to conect a printer


Install a printer on a home network

There are two basic ways to make a printer available to the PCs on your home network:

  • Attach it directly to one computer and share it with all the others on a network.

  • Connect the printer as a stand-alone device on the network itself.

This article explains how to do both in Windows. However, you should always first consult the information that came with your model for specific installation and setup instructions.
Setting up a shared printer

Traditionally, the most common way to make a printer available to a home network has been to connect it to one of the PCs and then tell Windows to share it. This is called a shared printer.

The advantage of sharing a printer is that it works with any USB printer. The downside? The host PC always has to be powered up, otherwise the rest of the network won't be able to access the shared printer.

In previous versions of Windows, setting up a shared printer could sometimes be tricky. But a new home networking feature in Windows 7 called HomeGroup has greatly simplified the process.

When a network is set up as a homegroup, printers and certain files are automatically shared. (To learn more about what homegroups do and how to use them, go to the Windows website and search for "HomeGroup: Recommended links.")

If you've already set up a homegroup and want to access a shared printer from another homegroup PC, just follow these steps:
To manually connect to a homegroup printer

  1. On the computer the printer is physically connected to, click the Start button ?id=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33, click Control Panel, type homegroup in the search box, and then click HomeGroup.

  2. Make sure the Printers check box is selected. (If not, select it, and then click Save changes.)

  3. Go to the computer you want to print from.

  4. Click to open HomeGroup.

  5. Click Install printer.

  6. If you don't already have a driver installed for the printer, click Install driver in the dialog box that appears.
    Note

    • After the printer is installed, you can access it through the Print dialog box in any program, just like a printer that's directly connected to your computer. The computer that the printer is connected to must be turned on to use the printer.

Setting up a network printer

Network printers-devices designed to connect directly to a computer network as a stand-alone device-were once found mostly in large offices. No more.

Printer makers are increasingly offering inexpensive inkjet and laser printers that are designed to serve as network printers on home networks. Network printers have one big advantage over shared printers: they're always available.

There are two common types of network printers: wired and wireless.

  • Wired printers have an Ethernet port, which you connect to your router or hub via an Ethernet cable.

  • Wireless printers typically connect to your home network using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technology.

Some printers offer both options. The instructions that came with your model should tell you exactly how to install it.

  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Devices and Printers.

  2. Click Add a printer.

  3. In the Add Printer wizard, click Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer.

  4. In the list of available printers, select the one you want to use, and then click Next.

  5. If prompted, install the printer driver on your computer by clicking Install driver. ?id=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  6. Complete the additional steps in the wizard, and then click Finish.
    Tips

    • Make sure that you have permission to use these printers before adding them to the computer.

    • You can confirm the printer is working by printing a test page. For details, see Print a test page

You need to setup your new homegroup settings on your Windows 7 PC. Once you set this up you can copy to all your windows XP computers. This will put all the computers in sync. You can find the homegroup by going to the start menu and searching for homegroup. Please let me know if you have questions.
