I have no earthly idea what a "homegroup" is, but it somehow was being shared on my PC when I'm the only one on it. I did turn it off and it logged out with a loading bar to quit sharing. I have a Dell Inspiron Ultrabook. My questions are "how did it just pop up now that it was sharing without me clicking on to accept"~? "Who is it sharing to"~? Thanks.

Don't know how that happened when this is the first time for me to see the page it opened to. Thanks.
