How do I add an XP computer to a Windows 7 homegroup?

can you rename a windows 7 homegroup
Answer
Answer
Hi Pamarch. HomeGroup only works with computers running Windows 7, so you can't add an XP computer to your homegroup. To answer your other question, homegroups don't have names so they can't be renamed.

Here's some information about how to share files and printers if you have computers running different versions of Windows:

Hope that helps!
