    Network machines missing in Explorer


    I have 5 computers and 4 are running Windows 10. The machine I use as the main one I upgraded from Windows 7 ULT to Win 10 and have had little trouble but, my number 2 machine I added the insider preview 5 builds ago and since then, when trying to view all machines in explorer only the Computers come up yet, on the main machine no problem, all machines that are on the network show up. It's only a little thing but, it is annoying.

    The pic on the left is the No 2 machine and the one on the right is the No 1 machine. I use assigned IP addresses on all the hardware that show up in No 1.

    Just basic troubleshooting:
    can you ping or access the missing computers from the RUN box using \\pc_name\

    Yes I can, it just seems strange that it only happens on the machine I am using for Insider builds.
    Even more so since I added the latest 10586?
