    Trying to connect Windows 8.1 to pre-made homegroup

    Hey guys, this is my first post, but that's not important.

    I've been having a problem with Windows 8.1, after I recently updated, yesterday in fact. I can't find the "Find devices and content" option in Connection Settings. I've already got a homegroup set up, but would it matter if the homegroup was made on a Windows 7 PC ? I've attatched a screen shot of my Connection Settings
