    What is the tsclient computer in my Network window in Windows 10?

    My Hyper-V vms show a tsclient computer in the Network view. I know tsclinet relates to remote desktop, but what can I do with the tsclient computer that appears in the Network window? Is it available for any user activity?

    Tsclient is an important part of Hyper-V networking. When your VM is in normal mode it's needed although you cannot access it directly:

    In enhanced mode when local resources have been enabled it offers access to local drives you have selected:

    In this you can access your host drives through Tsclient:

    However, this is of course not necessary because Tsclient also displays the enabled host drives (highlighted) directly in VM's This PC:

    Whatever you do, do not touch the TSclient! It is needed and required to assure networking between your host and its virtual machines works as expected.
