    Win10 says I have no network? How to resolve and see map?

    I went to Network & Sharing expecting to get a network map, but Windows 10 says I have no internet connection

    "You are not connected to any networks"
    How can that be?

    Note, my original network connection was modified by the installation of Hyper-V, in ways I may not fully understand, but the internet works (using it now).

    Whilst it would be nice for Windows to report that I have and am using one, it's more important to me that I get a network map.

    The map went away with Windows 8. They found that no one was really using it.

    If you have devices on the network, they should show in Devices and Printers if DLNA. If anything else, there are third party tools out there for network admin LAN mapping.

    Also Hyper-V can screw up your network connections, so you have to be careful.

    So, I cannot get a network map from Windows 10. It's a commonly used Windows feature, somewhat essential, but now deprecated in WIndows 10. Understood.

    Upon further review and experimentation, it seems that Windows 10 only "sees" computers when they are part of the same A) Domain or B) Workgroup, but not necessarily Homegroup or none of the above.

    Found when having trouble with shares between Windows 7 and Windows 10 that adding the following key and value resolved not seeing shares:
