WORKGROUP without a reference in the WS2012

Hello, every time I format my PC, because I want to update the SO, I enter a WORKGROUP without a reference in the WS2012 that is hosting any shared files. What is the WORKGROUP, and where to find it? I’m thinking about using a Domain since it will be a bit better when setting shared policies. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Ashton

Please read the information in the article and watch the video. I hope it will be helpful and will provide sufficient information about WORKGROUP in WS2012.

Hi @AshtonW,

Workgroups are similar to Homegroups in that they are how Windows organizes resources and allows access to each on an internal network. Windows 10 creates a Workgroup by default when installed, but occasionally you may need to change it. So if you would like to set up and join a Workgroup in Windows 10, this tutorial is for you.

A Workgroup can share files, network storage, printers, and any connected resource. Despite its name, a Workgroup isn’t just for work. It can be for anything you like.

You may automate this process using PowerShell or VBScript.
