Well, I forgot my homegroup password that I set up last July, and now I can't find the paper that I wrote it down on. I'm trying to get a new computer to join the homegroup , but of course, I need the original password on the main computer in order for the new computer to join it. Is there a way I can find out what the original password is, or how would I go about creating a new password? All the info I find on the net says to go to control panel, Network settings, Homegroup, and click on "Change Password". Well, of course, that is not in my control panel. So, is there a way out of the mess I'm in? I'd like to be able to share files with the new computer I have. That new computer is running Windows 7 (need that OS for a particular program I have to run). Any networking wizards out there?
