    Homegroup displays more machines than now exist

    I have a small network of computers and Homegroup is working a little to well.
    The network has had to have some changes, machines converting to W10 and changing names.
    The problem is there does not seem to be a way to refresh the Homegroup list of machines that have joined the Homegroup.

    Or is there? do you know a way to display only the machines live on the LAN.?

    Have you tried leaving the home group on all machines, After leaving the home group I would probably reboot all the computers and when joining the home group again I would make sure that the password is different

    No I have not as it is a difficult task to get all the machines off at the same time. I am not sure if this will resolve the situation. I am looking for other solutions. Such as a hidden command which resets the list of homegroup machines in a machine. I have read but not understood netsh capabilities yet. Does that do something with this list?

    I had this problem in the past and I think if you right click on the entries that are not connected you will see the option to remove them.

    Since my Homegroup does not work since the Threshold 2 update I can't give any better advice at this time!

    Thanks for the reply. I will try that but I really think MS has not thought through the Homegroup stuff. They are probably more interested in the larger business's.
