    shows multiple other options.

    There are some thread in these forums specific to win10. MSFT changed some defaults, I think. I've never seen or touched Win10.

    Re: Can't access windows shared folder from Ubuntu

    Might try NOT adding the share-folder-name. Just try smb://{the_name_of_windows_machine}/
    If any part of the name has spaces in it, change the name.
    Doesn't work at all. Error message:
    Filed to retrieve share list from server: Connection time out.


    Another detail (when I use request wirh share-folder-name): once request is executed, the credentials I introduced jest before changed:
    • the field where I enter windows USERNAME changes to ubuntu USERNAME
    • the field where I enter windows password empties


    Is it normal ?

    Re: Can't access windows shared folder from Ubuntu

    You are getting that error message when connecting to the Win10 machine because it thinks you a speaking gibberish.

    In order for the file manager to display a list of servers and their shares it drops down to the smb1 dialect to perform the task. And there it gets stuck.

    Problem is WIn10 disables smb1 on the server side and from a SMB2 / SMB3 perspective SMB1 is just a bunch of random 0's and 1's and Windows can't make any sense of it. There's a bug report for this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/gvfs/+bug/1828107

    See my answer here for possible remedies: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1179...s-10-smb-share

    In short: Either enable smb1 on the server side of WIn10 ( not recommended ) or do a cifs mount which by default can access a WIn10 machine using smb3.02.
