Going insane with filesharing on Windows 10 1803

Need some help, i been battling with my main PC, running windows 10 Home that recently updated to 1803. On 1709 and before, sharing was as simple as its been for years with windows, i own many PC on a local network, and all have same user and pw, and sharing was as simple as turning on network discovery, i can see all my pcs and access their main hard drives, even shared individual extra hardrives from some pcs, all work perfect.

Now windows 10 decided to drop Workgroups on 1803 and probably some other stuff that broke my network sharing. I still have a 4x Windows 7 pcs, a blue iris dedicated camera server, a small pc that its use for when someone else needs a pc, my brothers laptop, a windows 2011 (thats similar to 7) and now dual booting my pc between 7 and 10.

All windows 7 PCs work great, but none of my windows 10 pcs (2 with home, 2 with pro) can access the windows 7 machines, they see the PC on the network but once you click on them, they negotiate but never resolve, Error 0x80070035 appears.

I have look for tutorials, on youtube and forums, i feel there are lots of info as this is something that many use, but i have tried everything that i have found and still the same issue. Here some videos and things that i have tried,

How To Homegroup Without Homegroup in Windows 10 - April 2018 Update
- Setting / Network and Internet / Status / Change connection properties / Network Profile / Private
- Setting / Network and Internet / Status / Sharing options / Private / Turn on network discovery, Turn on File and printer Sharing
- Setting / Network and Internet / Status / Sharing options / All networks / Turn off public folder sharing, use 128bit encryption, Turn off password protected sharing
- Windows Explorer / Folder / Give Access to / Everyone

How To Share a Complete Drive in Windows 10 - April 2018 Update
I also tried to share the folder and hardrive as explained on the video.
Also did the Services / Function Discovery Resource publication / Automatic and checked that it was started and running.

Error 0x80070035 "No se Encuentra la Ruta de Acceso a la Red" en Windows 10/8/7「4 Soluciones」2018
- TCP/IP Netbios Helper: check that it was automatic and running
- Network and Sharing center / Ethernet / Properties / TCP/IPv4 / Properties / Advanced / WINS / Enable NetBios over TCP/IP
- REGEDIT / Hkey_Local_machine / Software / Microsoft / MSLicensing / Removing HARDWAREID and STORE
- Local Security Policy / I couldn't do it because its removed on my freshly formatted w10 1803, probably the video is 1709 that was upgraded (i really don't know).

I still cant access any of the windows 7 computers drives or folders from a windows 10 1803 machine, i have even formated in case i messed it up, and did all the settings again, no luck, i was so frustrated that i installed windows 7 again on my main pc and it works fine accessing windows 7 and 10 machines.

Either way, i really want to go back to 10, i have issues with Z370/8700K on 7 (not huge but does have some issues), so if you have any recommendations ill give a shot.

Deja vu

I recall this being a problem before in a prior Windows OS.

Was it win7 they broke or was it Vista? I don't recall but the gist was the exact same as yours.

It was working find
-poof not working any more

I think they had to resort to using some 3rd party app if I'm not mistaken.
But yeah, I remember reading about this before.

    Can you access any of the Windows 7 machines from the Windows 10 machine if you enter their IP address in the address bar? (i.e. \\ instead of \\Win7Machine).  Yes, the idiots at Microsoft broke Windows file sharing in the April 2018 upgrade and shipped it, resulting in Windows file sharing being non-functional out of the box without setting both Function Discovery services to auto-start.  I've had to make a few service calls over that fiasco...PCs in offices that used to work, all the sudden not talking to each other anymore.  They used to manually start if needed based on your file sharing and discovery settings.  The bad thing is, unless Microsoft fixes this bug before the next upgrade, they will all break again this fall.  Just gotta love the Windows upgrade model these days!

I think I did one of these to fix the issue with file sharing not working on 1803. I know I had to turn on some services in addition to the usual sharing the drive/folder, setting permissions to everyone, turning on network discover and turning off password protected file sharing.

I am about ready to pull the plug on Win 10. It gets so bloated I just wipe it and install it again, two times so far. Probably won't be stable until MS stops improving it. Funny how I don't have problems win WIN 7 now that MS is not actively "supporting" it. One more time and that is it. Linux don't scare me. I have been running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on the laptop after Win 10 made a mess out it. The biggest problem I have with linux is I don't use the command line options options often enough to remember them. Cam't say the same about Win 10.
