    Master Browser question

    I have 3 computers all connected to ports on my gateway via ethernet cables.
    All three are running Windows 10 Version 1809 with yesterday's updates..

    Desktop#1 is the Master browser (verified using the nbtstat -n command).

    Desktop#1 lists all three computer names under Network on File Explorer.

    Desktop#2 and Desktop#3 do not list any computer names under Network on File Explorer no matter how long I wait.

    From other posts, I thought that the Master Browser computer maintained a list of computer names and somehow transmitted the list to the other computers. It does not seem to be happening for me.

    This is not critical since I can add network locations via This PC.

    But any insight you could provide concerning the operation of the Master browser would be appreciated.

    Computer2 believes it's master browser. “IsDomainMaster” is missing in register.

    I have windows 7 64bit

    ERROR: bowser (without “r”)

    Event ID 8003

    The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer COMPUTER2 that believes that it is the master browser for the domain on transport NetBT_Tcpip_{EF334E47-0C21-4EBC-A9F2-E58955718A63}. The master browser is stopping or an election
    is being forced.

    I have seen suggestions to go to registry...

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters\ ....IsDomainMaster...not there.

    And change “IsDomainMaster” to “False” but "IsDomainMaster" missing from registry
