    Looking for a little help
    can you set up homegroup on a surface pro with the same microsoft account you use on a desktop PC

    The problem iam getting is
    A homegroup can only be created on a private network

    I have checked and the network is set to private

    Any help would be good thanks

    Normally you could use the same MS Account on ALL of your Windows installation and that includes the Surface, both RT and pro. The credentials of your MS Account would be taken over to all machines connected using that Account, you just need to al,low that.
