    Network Map Detailed view


    I set up a network when I used Windows 7, which has been inherited when I upgraded to Windows 10. It consists of: my PC, printer (wireless), WDTV, Sonos music thing and two routers. The second router simply extends my wireless cover.
    In Windows 7, I could display a network map, using "Network and Sharing Center": how can I display this network map in Windows 10? Windows 10 "Network and Sharing Center" shows the existence of the network, but I can't expand it. Furthermore, the nice little icon I spent ages learning to make is not displayed!
    Any constructive information would be treasured.
    Cheers

    This feature was actually removed in Windows 8. You may have to find a third-party tool now.

    Thanks very much for replying so rapidly.

    What a bore! I suppose I'll learn to live with it.

    Cheers

    Netgear Genie


    A quick trawl through download.com turned up "Netgear Genie". Though it is designed to work with Netgear routers, it did produce a suitable network visualisation very rapidly and is FREE.

    Cheers

    The closest Thing left In Windows 10 that I have found that will tell you what is connected in your network is to open Network and right click on Name or Category and select IP Address, As you can see it leaves a lot to be desired
