    Anything like net send or msg for Windows 10 computers?

    Every now and then I'd like to send a message to a pc in another room in my house. Both are on same network and running Windows 10. I believe net send and msg no longer works. did they replace it with something else? Or, is there a free program that would work? A hack? Thanks!

    I've tried that, but it didn't work. Someone said you had to have Windows 10 professional to use the "msg" command. I don't have that. Thanks for the response.

    Ya, you need Win10 Pro. I don't know of any hacks that worked. I saw someone tried to copy the msg.exe from Pro, but it didn't work.

    Maybe Growl? I haven't tried it myself.

    That looks a bit complicated. I guess with everyone having a cell phone handy, that's the way to do it. I just don't always have my cellphone handy. Thanks for the response!
