    Why when clicking network in file manager, a slow moving green bar


    Green bar moves across the top and I get nothing?
    It is super annoying!
    I have 3 network shares, and I was able to link to them in windows 10 using some other way, like connect to, map a server in the filemanager, and they instantly appeared.

    Yet I cannot explore the network itself from file manager?

    It has been 45 minutes now and the green bar has filled up all the way and is still flashing across, and nothing, no error, no results.

    I found it actually does finally complete, after about 2 hours.
    And then it displays a share, a picture folder from my other PC.

    That is odd that it takes so long. If I map a network drive, the various shares to map appear instantly in the selection box.
    So what is going on here?
