I had 4 windows 7 home computers in a small office (not in server domain) and used windows 7 home group to share 1 folder on a computer to be accessible to the other 3 computers.  I recently upgraded these computers to windows 10 pro and of course, the home group is gone.  What would be the best way to simulate the home group so I can share out a folder on 1 computer to the others in a windows 10 pro environment?
