    Workgroup Computers are displayed as Media Devices

    I have several Win10 computers on a "WORKGROUP" network. Network location is set to private on all machines with network discovery and file and printer sharing activated. Two computers are listed as workgroup computers and two as media devices. What do I have to do in order to get the media devices to show up as workgroup computers?

    Media Streaming Options was activated. Not sure how that happened and didn't realize it would affect the Workgroup.
