Windows 10: NAS share's not showing in "Network" of File Manager

    NAS share's not showing in "Network" of File Manager


    When I was using Windows 7 Pro, my NAS shares were showing in the Network area of the File Manger. But, I no longer see the shares in Windows 10. I can map the shares using the Map Network Drive. That works, but I need to be able to access these shares via the Network view.

    The reason why this is important is because I have a program that will not use mapped shares, I have to be able to browse to the shares. Is there a setting that I need to change somewhere that will let Windows 10 see those shares? BTW, they are public shares and currently the only items that I see in the network view is the Windows 10 machine, and a Windows 7 machine.

    Thanks

    Right click on network icon on task bar. It will be either the curved wireless bars for WiFi, or the little computer monitor for ethernet. Select open network and sharing center. On the left, change adapter settings. Right click on either the WiFi or Ethernet connection you are using. Select Properties. Scroll down to Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6). Uncheck it. Click OK.

    Also, does the program have any option to manually enter the server name? Does the server absolutely have to be browsed to under the file manage network section? Even if the server doesn't show up under the network section, you can still manually enter the server name like \\SERVER2\

    LCDR,

    Thank you for the info. I actually posted back saying that the change didn't work, but for some reason that post did not show up. Perhaps that's a good thing, because the NAS just suddenly started showing. Perhaps it just took a while for it to become discoverable.

    Thanks again.

    Semper Fi.
