The firewall may be causing the issue and this is the reason you are not able to perform well for the change. So do look out for the aspect that is required and process well which is essential.

    There is a ways through which you can perform well for the change. All you need to do is to get access to the start menu option and then to the control panel. As it is been done you need to look out for Folder option and then under the view tab you need to uncheck the Use Simple File Sharing option. I hope this will be better for you and then process out for the feature which will be better for you. Do look out.

    Try troubleshooting the device well and then look for network sharing. I hope you may then be able to perform well for the task that is necessary. It is possible that the system is not able to work well or cope with the network due to some unassigned parameters. You need to look out well for the change which will be better for you and then perform for the aspect.

    Check out by performing or making the system to run under safe mode. As it is been done you need to look out for the desired change which will be better for you. As safe mode may not have much of the features enabled I hope it should be easily processed and can work well for you. So try sharing or enabling the feature under this mode.
