    Not Displaying Computer On Network


    Since the Windows 10 Creators Update, one of my computers cannot be seen on the Network from other computers, although I can view it by typing \\Computer Name. It just won't display automatically like all my other computers.

    All the computers on the network are Windows 10. Is there some refresh that I can do on the problem computer? I am certain that it is a Window issue, but I just don't know how to make it show up. I can keep typing \\Computer Name, but I would rather it displayed like the others.

    Any ideas?

    Try enabling some share on the invisible computer and see.

    N.B.: You can always disable the share afterwards.

    Thanks for your replies, but I tried both those suggestions without luck.

    I don't know all the evils this bloody Creators Update brought onto us.

    Open a command prompt windows and type IPCONFIG /all and check if NetBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled for your active adapter.

    NetBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled for my ethernet adapter, but not for Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface.

    What are you using: IPV4 or IPV6?

    Homegroup requires IPV6.

    My IPv6 settings are set to automatic.
    Do I have to change anything to get it to use it?

    By the way, I don't use Homegroup on any computers.
    I just share a folder.

    This is the status.
    IPv6 says no internet access, but it says that on all of my computers.

    Homegroup is local, so it only means your ISP is not handling IPV6.

    Let's go back to basics, then. Open a command prompt window and type
    IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\Ipconfig.txt
    NET VIEW >C:\Netview.txt
    NET SHARE >C:\Netshare.txt
    (You are encouraged to copy & paste)
    Post the contents of the above 3 text files (and delete them afterwards)
