    Homegroup Listener and Homegroup Provider not listed in services


    As title - Homegroup Listener and Homegroup Provider are not listed in services. This is on a clean install of windows 10 pro. Any idea on how to get these services back?
    Thanks

    Homegroup was removed in the April Update version 1803. You now have to use File Sharing in Windows 10.

    Turn On or Off File and Printer Sharing in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials

    Turn On or Off Password Protected Sharing in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials

    Also if your networked computers are not showing in File Explorer, there is a fix you will need to apply:

    You need to set two services to automatic (delayed start):

    Function Discovery Provider Host
    Function Discovery Resource Publication

    Open a Run box, (win key + R) type services.msc and press enter to open the Services List. Scroll down until you find those two. Set them to automatic (delayed start). Then right click and start them both. That PC will now show up.

    That would explain why they are missing
