    After updating to Win10 version 20H2 I cannot HOME NETWORK my Desktop & Laptop


    This is a NEW problem following my updating my Desktop & Laptop to version 20H2.

    I have for years NETWORKED & shifted hundreds of files / many directories

    from my FINAL VERSION IS ALWAYS ON THE DESKTOP to mobile clones on my Laptop.

    Now I cannot see my two PCs on the network other than the laptop's "user" directory only.


    I have spent TWO DAYS reading MS support & many Youtube videos & Much more.

    The most complete checklist on a video I found didn't work, either. Here is the URL:

    https://www.kapilarya.com/fix-windows-10-file-explorer-not-showing-network-computers

    I Followed the Video steps slavishly with NO success:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Using search cortana open

    CONTROL PANEL

    Open

    Network Sharing Center

    Change advanced network settings

    Turn on network discovery

    Turn on Automatic setup of network controlled devices

    save changes

    Win+R

    RUN

    Services.msc

    ok

    function discovery resource publication

    set to

    automatic

    highlight again

    function discovery resource publication

    click on

    START

    close SERVICES window

    Open File explorer.

    NETWORK

    put mouse in middle of white space and hit

    Refresh

    close File Explorer Network

    Win+R

    RUN

    Services.msc

    OPEN A BLANK RECTANGULAR BOX

    enter my IPV4 Desktop address
    Command-IPCONFIG and SPECCY gave me variant IPV Desktop addresses.

    In Norton 'Firewall Trusted Device" I use them serially and then both of them. No joy.

    it could NOT FIND DESKTOP 192.168.0.11

    it could NOT FIND DESKTOP 192.168.0.2

    it could NOT FIND LAPTOP 192.168.0.12


    Open File explorer.

    both Desktop and Laptop NETWORK displays:

    I DO see my laptops USERS directory.. ONLY... NOTHING ELSE

    I cannot 'SEE' both PCs and I cannot update my Laptop with

    the final / best hundreds of files in dozens of directories.


    I want my home network back.

    Microsoft KILLED HomeGroup a while ago, now it killed ad-hoc home networking.

    I really like my software SYNCBACK PRO that helps me 'mirror' working directories over 2 devices.

    How do I get a working home network back?


    Thanks in advance

    :)

  3. Networking between laptop and desktop on same network both under Windows 10

    We have 6 computers on our PERSONAL HOME network (NOT HomeGroup as we have mutiple versions of Windows - on purpose). Prior to WIN10, we were able to open files and share access.

    I have WIN10 on my Dell Laptop and we just installed WIN10 on our desktop. Once we updated the desktop we have the following scenario:

    WIN10 Desktop CAN access my WIN10 DELL Laptop

    WIN10 Desktop CAN access our Vista Dell Laptop

    WIN10 DELL Laptop CAN acccess our Vista Dell Laptop

    WIN10 DELL Laptop CANNOT access our WIN10 Desktop

    Cannot find any help on this but need to resolve this as soon as possible.

    Any suggestions?

    Planning to download the latest Win10.ISO (vers.1803) and manually update:
    - Then wait that my ordered new SSD arrives and clone the old HDD to it.
