    W10 Home PCs seeing only Win7 Pro & W10 Pro PCs on LAN, Not Home vers.

    I have a small Workgroup LAN (Ethernet) with one remaining Win 7 Pro PC (I would like to phase out), 2 - Win 10 Pro PCs, and a few Win 10 Home addition PCs.

    What I have noticed lately is when viewing the Network from the Win 7 Pro PC, ALL of the PCs in the network are visible. Browsing from a Win 10 Pro machine does not display Win 10 Hm PCs. Browsing from a Win 10 Home machine displays only the Win 7 Pro and Win 10 Pro PCs. The Win 10 Hm machines can't see other Win 10 Hm machines. They are all in the same WORKGROUP. The Win 10 Hm machines have the Network Discovery on, Shared folders, etc.

    This group shares Access database tables located in the Win7 PC, all working fine.

    This seems odd, and I'm hoping there is a simple fix.
    Any advice appreciated.

    Hi Edward.

    Please have a look at this tutorial. There are a couple of services to check and you likely need SMB1 enabled.

    Maybe this is a duplicate as you mentioned Network Discovery etc. (Not sure what etc is. )

    Share Files and Folders Over a Network in Windows 10

    I had all the settings right and found that I could get all devices to see one another if I did a network reset on each Win 10 devices that was having issues..

    Start > Settings > Network and Internet > scroll down right hand side, at the bottom > Network Reset.

    Resetting network will cause loss of wifi passwords and you may have to re-install any special comm software like VPN's.

    For me all my devices were wired devices and I didn't have any VPN's.
