I am a consumer, not IT trying to survive in Win 10. I have multiple computers in my home. Both running W10 (1 home & 1 pro version) shared w fam. Internet ISP Xfinity. I think I have to have Win Server because W10 shares & syncs to everything (already terrified) - I'm no expert but have to maintain both & I am very confused. Some stuff we share some I want to keep private. To do so, does that make me a Sys Adm? Do I need a domain, or cloud - which I think means Enterprise???---but I don't connect to a bus? So does that make me a domain controller --oh god! What do I need to keep my data safe, share some programs features & lock down others from my click happy grandchildren (& me without an IT background?) Even my ISP 'piggy backs' my Wi-Fi signal as open source, and app providers PRETEND that we ave a choice over what we share? What do I have to have, what role do I play, & what level of Win 10 automation provides the flexibility to share & still keep my system, computers, & data safe without spending 24/7 monitoring in a W10 environment? I feel like Windows 10 has thrown me in over my head & when I try to figure things out I end up at sites like this -- I'm no IT pro & would welcome any advice from this community & hopefully in terms that I can understand.
