Question Win10 access to Admin's NAS files

Upgraded a Win8.1 machine to Win10 Pro x86 1903 yesterday. When I open Windows Explorer on my local LAN and enter


The Windows Explorer window opens displaying the shared folders. When I attempt to enter /homes a login screen appears where I enter my administrator credentials. This fails to open /homes. However, I can log in with user credentials and access user home.

The odd thing is that I have a Win10 x64 1903 (not Pro) laptop on this network, that has working credentials that access /homes

I've no clue what is going on here. How can I access /homes?

Replying to myself... I created a "generic" credential which seems to have solved the log in issue. Weird, as this was unnecessary on my laptop.
1811+, 3x 1813+, 718+, 214play ... multisite Ubiquiti Unifi networks (USG-Pro,PoE,NanoHD)

yes, yes Win credentials can solve all the troubles with connection to Syno by Network connection from Explorer

And all the work before I realized Win 10 had put me in a temp profile... Good grief Charlie Brown.
