If you decide that HomeGroup isn't for you (or, perhaps, you want to join a different home-group), you can leave a homegroup . Open HomeGroup (shown earlier in Figure 18-2) and click Leave The Homegroup . Because HomeGroup is a true peer-to-peer network, when any computer leaves the homegroup, the homegroup remains intact and all other members are unaffected (except they'll no longer be able to see your computer's resources, of course).
Note, however, that the Homegroup icon remains in Windows Explorer even after leaving the homegroup . Selecting the icon displays a message that includes an option to join a homegroup (if one is detected) or create one.
