A homegroup is a group of PCs on a home network that can share devices (such as printers), and libraries (such as your Documents, Pictures, Music, and Video libraries). Using a homegroup makes sharing easier. Your homegroup is protected with a password, which you can change at any time.
Typically, a homegroup is created automatically when you set up a PC with Windows 7
, Windows 8
, Windows RT
, Windows 8.1
, or Windows RT 8.1
. If a homegroup already exists on your home network, you can just join it.
This tutorial will show you how to create a homegroup
in a Windows 8
and Windows 8.1
PC that other PCs on the home network can join
