comment Windows 10 computer can't connect to any other computer on the network
Printer and file sharing has been enabled since before I posted. As far as I can tell it is enabled on the Win7 desktop as well, for all the good it seems to do...

comment How to display default admin shares (C$) in Windows Explorer
Yep, I was aware that $ hid the share, and sharing out each drive is something I was trying to avoid doing (several desktops with multiple drives each). Since I've had computers automatically display the hidden shares before, I was hoping to figure out how to do it again. FWIW, $ only hides the shares for other Windows machines. My Linux and Android devices can see all the shares by default. Makes me think there is a setting (registry?) which is specific to the viewing machine, not the remote ones.

comment Separate my Windows 8.1 login from my Microsoft login without creating a new account?
@CharlieRB Yes, but those solutions still require changing the user name, which I'm trying to avoid.

comment Separate my Windows 8.1 login from my Microsoft login without creating a new account?
Is there any way to just use a local password instead of the online one? I don't mind having the accounts linked, I just hate entering my online password every time I unlock my PC because it is 16 characters long and very complex (numbers, symbols, etc.) while my preferred Windows login is significantly less so.

@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Not really a duplicate because that one wouldn't work for my situation. #1 because he had an old local account to fall back on (I don't since the online option was set up from the start) and #2 because I don't want to change my user name since it will mess up other stuff (that solution had him change to "Mark Local", he was only concerned with losing profile data).

@Ramhound Apparently, but they don't really tell you that up front. So how can I undo this? Is a format/reinstall the only option if I want to have just one account on the computer and not use my online password every time I log in to my computer?

Yes, that's exactly what it's doing. The problem is that the user name I pick is already in use because it tied that to my Microsoft acct.

That's pretty much what I tried to do, but it requires me to create a new account when I hit disconnect. Wouldn't be such a big deal except it won't let me use the user name I want because it says it's already in use.

comment Expanding abbreviated text with Substitute formula in Excel
If the spaces don't work (such as the word being at the end of the field) you could do one replace of "sauv" with "sauvignon", then do a 2nd repcale of "sauvignonignon" with "sauvignon".
