So what exactly is the problem ?
In your file manager if you go to "network" (network:///), is the network not browsable ?
Have you actually shared any folders in either Windows or Linux) ?
I don't know how to go about setting up sharing between Win & Ubuntu
I typed in 'network///' and I got a message 'You'll need a new app to open this network'
(If you've not figured, I'm using Window$10)
No, that's why I am asking for help.
and where does UEFI come into this ?
If you read what I wrote correctly, you will see why I mentioned UEFI. It has NOTHING to do with the networking problem, after the first paragraph, I wrote;I know this is 'Shared Filesystems' forum but that was just a little history.
I've created a new thread for that problem.
