A workgroup is Microsoft's technology for a peer-to-peer Windows computer network.

Microsoft operating systems in the same workgroup may allow each other access to their files, printers, or Internet connection. Members of different workgroups on the same local area network and TCP/IP network can directly access shared resources in workgroups to which they are joined and other workgroups on the same physical network as evidenced by later versions of Windows like Windows XP and Windows 7.
