    Cannot see laptops with files shared over the network


    I have two laptops, both sitting next to the WiFi but from some reason I cannot see any shared device on laptop 1.

    And on laptop 2, I can see all the devices with shared files in them. I can even access the shared files in laptop 1, but I cannot see the shared files on laptop 2.

    Why is this happening?

    I just installed Windows 10 on both of them, same method, same software, same laptops that is same model.

    Why is this happening?

    I forgot to mention how I shared it.

    All I did was create a new folder on "D:" drive.
    Right click and Properties -> Sharing -> Share.
    In people to share with I put down "Everyone" and added it and then gave Read and Write permission.
    And then clicked Ok to share it.

    That's all I have to do right?



    Here are some screenshots:
    On one laptop I can see both my laptops. The one I am using as well as the other one.
    And on Laptop 2, I cannot see any device except my router.
