    Shares no longer automatically visible after upgrade to build 15063


    I have a laptop and desktop that have both been upgraded to Win10 Pro build 15063.138. The desktop has half a dozen folders shared so that the laptop can access them. Sharing was working without any problem prior to the upgrade, but after upgrading the machines to this latest build, the laptop can no longer see either the desktop machine or the shares when browsing Network in Windows Explorer after being booted. When I check on the desktop machine, the folders are still being shared, and if I explicitly enter the path to one of the shares in the Windows Explorer Quick Access field on the laptop (i.e. \\<desktop-name>\<share-name>), then the desktop and all the shares become visible under Network in the left-hand Explorer pane and can all be accessed.

    I've attached a screenshot from Windows Explorer on the laptop, showing that even after I've explicitly made the desktop machine and shares visible under Network in the left-hand pane, the desktop machine is still not showing up in the right-hand pane.

    Any ideas on this?

    Hi there

    Try re-setting router and re-booting as many machines on the network as possible --it's quite possible that even something like a smart phone or TV is using an IP address that you previously had for your computer.

    I've upgraded to CU edition (1703) and have absolutely no problems at all with connections both to and from all machines in my network.

    If the re-boot and router reset doesn't work try installing updates - there area few for CU edition --seems to have fixed a load of network problems --at least in my case (Windows 10 X-64 pro en-GB build 1703).

    Thanks, but the problem is none of these. As I also use it as a media server, the desktop machine has a static IP address that is outside the DHCP address range that the router allocates, and I can access it as a media server without any problem. It's only the Windows network shares that are showing a problem.

    The router automatically reboots 3am every Sunday, and the desktop and laptop machines are powered down every evening, and the problem has persisted across the last reboot of the router and the last several reboots of the Win10 machines.

    Windows Update doesn't find any updates available for either the desktop or laptop machines.

    Problem will be master browser. When you look for a share Windows doesn't look but goes to the master browser for a list if the list is not updated you get your problem a full update will mess things up How to Determine the Master Browser in a Windows Workgroup | Scotties Tech.Info
