    Why can I not see other PCs on my network?


    I have a small home network with two computers on the same WiFi connection. Both are Windows 10 and I log on to them with the same Microsoft account. They are both on the same workgroup. So pretty simple setup. I store files on my desktop that I often access from the laptop.


    Lately, I had to restore my laptop to a factory image. After doing this, and the usual tasks of turning on discovery, file sharing, etc., I find that the newly restored laptop can no longer connect to, or ping, the desktop. The reverse does work however. I am able to see the laptop from the desktop but not vice versa. NOTHIng has changed on the desktop in terms of shared folders, permissions, etc. What else can I try? I had this working before the laptop reset!

    I can verify I've done the following things:
    * Both computers are on the same wi-fi network.

    * Both computers are signed on using my Microsoft account.

    * Network and file sharing is turned on on both computers, as is network discovery.

    * The desktop can see network folders on the laptop, just not vice versa.

    :)

    My PC is not listed in Network

    Hi Eagle51 & thanks for quick response

    I am very grateful for your help

    1 was not enabled. I enabled it and restarted the HT-PC, but now the HT-PC is not visible in Network list on any computer.

    ...then i run 2 and both was true.

    Next step?
