Networking :: How To Remote Control From XP

Feb 16, 2016

Win 10 computer can see the XP machine and access shared files, like wise from the XP machine. I can remote control the XP computer using Desktop Connection, it works great. What I cannot do is remote control the Win 10 computer from the XP. File sharing and network discovery is setup on both. The network was established before Win 10, as the group is WORKGROUP. Too many devices to go through and change over to HomeGroup.

The XP computer is the professional version with Remote Desktop installed. I do not get any numerical error msgs to track down the problem. I have tried using the IP address and computer name but neither work.

If remote computer has user password all works well,but if no user password can't log on. In windows 7 this was not a problem,is there a work around so if two windows10 computers have no user passwords you can connect?. This is on a private home network. Don't want to use third party software for this process.

Networking :: Remote Desktop Connection - Aborts All Activity When Close

Jan 16, 2016

I never had this problem on Windows 7. But when I remote to a Win 10 PC, start a process, let's say copying files, when I close the connection (via the X at the top...NOT disconnect from start menu), it closes the copy process.

Are there some new settings or something that I need to change to correct this?

Networking :: Remote Desktop To Machine Fails Or Takes Multiple Tries

Nov 13, 2015

I've been noticing that RDP is a toss up on my Windows 10 machines. It hangs and I have to close the connection, then try again and get an error stating it's not available because it's busy, then try a third time after a few minutes and it works. I have disabled connecting to printers, clipboard, smartcard, etc. and still have the problem.

Networking :: DLNA / UPnP - Folders Not Showing On Remote Device?

Aug 16, 2015

I have recently upgraded to Windows 10. I have a homegroup setup on my home network which allows me to share the music files stored on my PC with phones & tablets etc for streaming.

Since the upgrade when I access the files using Apps like BubbleUPnP or MConnect the music files are all shown in one giant folder rather than being sorted into the sub folders (Artist, Album etc) as it is on my PC.

This problem has only occurred since upgrading to 10. I reverted to 7 to check and everything went back to normal.

Is there a setting or checkbox I am missing?

Computer Doesn't Power On Properly When Wake Up - Stuck On Blank Screen

Apr 11, 2016

Whenever I on my computer after I wake up or come back from work, my windows sometimes do not boot up fully. it will load and then gets stuck on an empty orange screen (might be related to the fact that I have orange set as my colour theme for my windows 10). I will then hold on to the power button on my computer to force a shutdown. Right after that, I will power on again and the computer starts up fine.
This has been occurring for a while - I didn't have this issue when I first installed (upgraded from windows 8) windows 10.
I tried googling my issue, and I have turned off Fast Start-up under power options but it did not solve the problem.

Chinese Characters Appearing In Windows

Aug 20, 2015

If I copy paste the line seen on screenshot, then this is what i get:


I'm 100% sure it's not malware or any other type of malicious software, so please don't start saying that my pc has a virus. What I'd like to know, is where it's coming from and why is windows 10 doing this?

In past, in win 7, i've seen similar chinese characters somewhere in documents and settings folders within some files, i was cleaning my files, going through all the folders in docs and settings and i saw some files having similar names.

It's a fresh install of windows 10, I haven't downloaded anything, but simple things, such as google chrome, ccleaner, winamp, skype ..etc, everything from trusted sources only, so clearly it's not a virus or malware, whatever it is, it's within windows 10. I'm just trying to figure out why my PC is going chinese on me.

Unable To Type Special Characters Since Upgrading?

Dec 9, 2015

I'm unable to type all special characters that require the Alt key to be pressed. €, ², ³, μ, and most importantly, @, are no longer possible with a German keyboard layout. I tried German German and Austrian German, and both failed to produce those signs. Normally, the @ sign is produced by pressing Alt+q, but since upgrading to Windows 10, nothing happens when I press Alt+q (or any other combination of Alt+letter).

Only German keyboard layouts seem to be affected, as I'm able to use Alt+letter combinations in other languages; just not in German.
