Windows 10: Disappearing shared printer Solved

    Disappearing shared printer


    I upgraded my laptop and desktop to Windows 10. Everything OK after re-setting up Homegroup, including file and printer sharing. However, shared printers on desktop suddenly have become invisible to laptop, although shared files are still visible. I deleted the homegroup and set up a new one - same problem, shared printer invisible from laptop, shared files visible. Any ideas how to solve this?

    System seems OK now. After resetting and setting all the "sharing" options on thge desktop to which the printers are attached, my laptop has finally rediscovered the printers - for no obvious reason.
