I have a high-end PC, on which I use Carbide Create/Fusion 360 to design. I was using a laptop in my garage to run my CNC and just using a USB thumb drive to transfer files between the two. I recently upgraded to a Fusion5 tablet to run the CNC (the touch screen is so nice!), but since there’s only a single USB port, I can no longer use a thumb drive to transfer files.
Now…I consider myself an above average “techie.” Setting up a wireless home network on Windows 10 seems simple. However, I have failed. What am I missing here? I have followed tutorials to the letter, but nothing seems to address the issue I’m having.
File sharing/discovery is enabled on both devices. Password requirement is turned OFF, yet I still get a password/login popup. I’m wondering if it’s because I’m logged into a Microsoft account and not logged in “normally” to the device itself? I’m really at a loss here.
Definitely some great alternatives here, guys. Thank you. I think I may go with the USB hub route. I believe there’s an active thread right now about using powered USB hubs to address power down issues that tablets can have. Seems like a good failsafe to have in place.
I ran into the same problem when I upgraded to Windows 10 64 bit on my desktop computers. I have two desktop systems and a laptop.
After several days of head scratching and Google searches I noted that I was using a second account on the laptop which was running 64 Bit Windows 10. I don’t remember why I did that but wondered if the 64 bit version didn’t like to use the primary Administrators account. Perhaps a security issue.
I created a second Admin account and used its ID and password when asked for system credentials. I saved the credentials so I am not asked for them again. I only had to log into the secondary admin account once.
I have never found this documented but it worked for me.
I do not have a MicroSoft account.
I retired 7 years ago as an IT guy after 40 years but am admittedly out of the loop with the new stuff.
Good luck with whatever solution you choose. I like local control.
