    Hi folks.

    Sorry I can't answer the query but a PLEASE to any Ms staffer etc reading these Forums (and Im sure they do). :

    Can you get some sort of Networking that just works straight out of the box so people's NAS's, Linux Samba servers,Androids phones, tablets,iPhones, Smart TV's and of course other Windows laptops/computers!! can see and connect to Windows shares (and the other way around too - Windows should be able to connect to those devices).

    I've been using Windows since Windows 3.11 that's a long time - and Windows Networking has always been randomly problematic.

    I've also used Linux for years too -- and Linux Networking has for me always worked straight out of the box - only rarely if using some rare type of Wifi hardware was there a problem --certainly never had problem on LAN's.

    Networking is an essential these days -- even for small "mom and pop" installations - so PLEASE Ms FIX IT.

    For the rest I like Windows 10 - easiest install and apart from Networking least problematic Windows yet so don't undo all the good work by hosing up Networking nearly every time there's an update. !!!

    I guess this post should be considered "solved".

    According to this article on Technet (Stop using SMB1 | Storage at Microsoft) SMBv1 is dead, The network folder in file explorer will no longer populate properly unless you go through a whole lot of garbage every time you reboot or you'll manually have to search for assets on the remote PCs. In a small home or business network that is BS. One shouldn't need a Microsoft certified tech or admin to run a 4 PC peer to peer network...which is what HomeGroup was supposed to do, but making it work is an even bigger pain in the neck (I finally have a semi stable HomeGroup, but what it took to get there was unbelievable and I couldn't tell you for sure how I managed it...and now it's going away in the next big update).
