Make sure that the Network is set as a Private Network. If it is set for Public, other computers will not be able to connect to this computer. If you have a Private Network, click on Advanced Sharing Settings.

On the Private (Current Profile) tab, turn on Network Discovery and Automatic Setup of network connected devices. Turn on File and Printer Sharing. Click Save Changes. If these settings were already selected, you will not need to save anything. Click Cancel and continue to the next step.
