Linux Mint (xfce) 19.3/Win10/Shared Win Folder

I’ve set up a shared folder on Win10–this can be successfully accessed by Android 9 and other Win10 machines.

However, when trying to access Win’s shared folder in Linux Mint 19.3 (Thunar or PCMANFM), I am prompted for MS userid/password (which is the same as my universal MS user/password used for setting up Win10, etc). I enter the correct userid/password (the userid = email address) and after hitting OK, the login screen simply comes again.

What handle do I need to jiggle?

Many thanks.
