Need help..cannot turn on network file and printer sharing options Tags: Configuration File Sharing Printers Wireless Networking Last response: May 23, 2012 2:50 PM in Wireless Networking Share provlima May 23, 2012 12:50:13 PM I am trying to set up file sharing between my new Dell and my desktop (both W7) and have come up with a frustrating problem. The problem is that on the “change sharing options for different network profiles” page reached through (control panel>network& sharing center>choose home group sharing options) I cannot turn on the Network discovery and File sharing options. I click on the two enabling buttons for "Turn on File Discovery" and "Turn on File & printer sharing" and I then find the save changes tab greyed out so I am unable to save the settings. Any help with this frustrating problem greatly appreciated!
