Windows 10 Pro V1809 can only see one of my shared computers

    I feel your pain having gone through all of that myself. I finally decided that I needed to relearn Microsoft networking so that I could deal with this issue permanently!

    At the end of it all I finally came to the realization that the real problem was that MS making the decision to drop SMB 1.0 support meant that device discovery via NetBIOS was history. This meant no more could you see other networked computers in the directory tree view of Explorer like the days of old! So what to do now?

    My answer is really quite simple but takes an open mind to change to come to grips with. Rather than having other computers appear in the directory tree view and as computers when Network View is selected in Explorer I now create new Network Locations to SMB shares on other computers from which I wish to have access. This creates a shortcut to the share and places that shortcut in This PC under Network locations.

    In doing this I have access that always shows up without fail. It allows you to have quick access to shares and mapped drives in a single location. Explorer opens by default in the This PC view so your shares and mapped drive access is displayed for you in this view making it very painless and user friendly.

    Trust me Railtech -- I do have an open mind if it fixes this issue I know many have experienced and/or experiencing still! I understand your recommendation, printed it out, and am going to work on it right away. I have several business customers that rely on network shares and this will be so helpful!

    Based on this 'correct process', do you recommend I de-select the "SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support" in the Windows Feature area that I enabled? As well as all the other settings I changed such as automating (vs manual) services? I don't think the latter is an issue, but the whole SMB issue is still a learning curve for me.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH for the fast response AND saving me from reading through countless responses, etc.

    I would certainly disable SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support. I would also change back your other settings as well, no sense in having services running all the time when they are not necessary. You can check that SMB is disabled by using PowerShell. Open and admin instance and type Get-SMBServerConfiguration Look through the results for the SMB1 entry.

    When you are selecting SMB shares while adding network locations the Browse window will accept friendly names and will auto populate for you once the hostname is typed. Example: \\hostname\ All shares that have sharing enabled will be displayed for selection after that. Very convenient and you might discover that some shares are accessible that should not be!
