After upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 I stumbled upon an issue which prevented creating or joining a homegroup.
As it turns out – after a few days of digging into the matter – being unable to join or create a homegroup was due to an non-working 'Peer Networking Grouping Service'.

Did a clean installation of Windows 8 and upgraded to Windows 8.1.
Can't connect to the Homegroup with other computers also running Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. My computer won't accept the password from other workgroup's computers.

Just leave the current group and create a new one. Then join this new group and that's it. ... Več ... o Homegroup in Windows 8.1 - Can't Connect to Another Computer's Homegroup
