    However, in my case, one computer is difficult to access even though it's listed. Trying a few times corrects it and then it works just fine.
    I have a similar complaint, and only when there is a reboot required to finish any updates on that one computer. If I reboot again, it boots clean and does what it should do.

    What "amuses" me most about this is that the computer giving me grief now was previously the more reliable to connect properly to the network.

    Yay, all was fixed with the latest updates for another laptop. Now I just updated another laptop from version 10240 to 10586.164 and this laptop cant any see anyone in network, most of the time it cant even see itself. Any ideas?

    I'd try and reboot it a couple of times

    Cant access network files on home network with windows 10, this is the error
    code ox80004005: Windows cant access server \\Server name\directory

    Goto control panel > Network and sharing center > Change advanced sharing settings >
    In network discovery make sure ‘Turn on network discovery’ has a bullet point, then in
    ‘All networks’ make sure the bullet point is on “turn off protected sharing’ close the control panel.

    Then Go to the computer you cant access, left click the drive or directory you want to share > Properties > Security > Edit > Add > Advanced >Find Now > find “Everyone” > Ok > High lite “Everyone” > Click ‘allow Full Control > Ok out

    In my case it doesn't. Whenever I start a computer up, one of the other computers on the network (same one each time) is displayed but not accessible. Error message says that a protocol is not installed. However, after six to a dozen attempts, it does access that computer and it remains accessible for the rest of that session.

    That has nothing to do with the major problem in this thread and also is really bad advice security wise.

    Still at complete loss with the another laptop, anyone have any ideas?

    OK. So it sounds like the network and file sharing are all working fine with the exception of what the Windows 10 system can "see".
    Here is my standard setup for Windows 10:

    I've also attached them as I can't get them to expand here.
    Although letting Windows manage Homegroups, there are NO homegroups!

    Yes, it does seem to be fixed now, thank goodness. However, in my case, one computer is difficult to access even though it's listed. Trying a few times corrects it and then it works just fine.
    I also see the 80070035 error a few times when trying to access a network share. Strangely, though, if the underlying shares themselves are added to Quick Access, there is no such delay in accessing them.
