    Default Two windows 10 computers on the same network, only 1 is visible?

    Hi guys, I could use some help on this, if you please.

    Two windows 10 computers on the same network, but only 1 is visible.

    Under File Explorer > this PC one of the two can not see the other computer.
    Or under File Explorer > Network

    Computer 1 = Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit (build 18362)
    Computer 2 = Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit (build 17763)



    Computer 2 is not able to see computer 1.

    Via TeamViewer I have compared side by side their network discovery settings.
    All are set to discover without password protection required.
    Both profiles are local Administrator.
    Both have a password.
    In the same IP scheme, 192.168.1.xxx
    Connected to the same router.
    Firewall should not be a factor I have not turned it off.
    All updates are current.
    What am I missing here? Are the builds incompatible? Or is it just another MS screwup?

    This sounds just like my issue, above. I didn't see yours when I posted mine. I must have missed it, sorry.
    Except I have 3 PCs. At least two on the May (1903) version of Win 10 Home. 64bit.
    I'd suspected Kaspersky, but that doesn't seem to have made a difference.

    OK. Solved for me.
    SMB had stopped running. In fact SMB2 had mysteriously vanished. SMB1 (the original) was still set to not available.
    Supposedly setting that as on should then install V2 automatically. It didn't but I found the method to install it from Powershell - from, I think this site. But through Google.
