    File Explorer not showing network

    by mjw7265222 ·

    I have two Win 11 Home 64 bit laptops and one Win 10 Home 64 bit laptop networked together. All my file and folder shares work and I am able to map all the drives I need on all machines. The Network Pane and the Navigation pane in File Explorer on the Win 10 laptop and one of the Win 11 laptops show all the devices on the network just fine. The other Win 11 laptop shows everything except itself and its shared folders. It shows them on neither the Network Pane nor the Navigation Pane. I have checked the settings in the Network and Sharing Center on both Laptops and they are identical. Both Win 11 laptops have the latest build of Win 11 installed with all updates- they were installed from the same ISO file. This problem shows up with both File Explorer and with several File Explorer replacements I have tried. I have no problem accessing anything, it’s just a little more difficult to do on this one laptop. It’s just very weird that this laptop will not show itself in its own File Explorer.

    Can anyone help?

      From Control Panel open Programs and Features.
      Click Turn Windows features on or off.
      Check the SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support feature and click OK.
      Restart your computer.
      After restart open File Explorer to view the network computers.
