Problem :

I am using my home network to share my files between devices in my household with no problem, but very recently I had to re-install the Windows 10, after that, no devices were shown under the Network in File Explorer. I can surely ping my devices and also I can access all of them with their ips but I can't get their list.

net view /all returns:
Home network System error 6118 has occurred.
The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available.

What seems to be a problem?

Solution :

I researched on it and it seems like the service needs to be enabled called the "Computer Browser"

I could not find above service in my Task Manager -> Services.

Not in my Win+R -> services.msc.

So I kept searching and many answers didn't help me as I knew firewall was not a issue. But it mentioned the SMB so I searched around it and found below one:

Make sure the SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support is properly installed as the windows feature.

It seems like my later versions of Windows 10 have this feature as disabled by default. So I just enabled it and restarted my computer and now my network devices show up and net view /all returns my computer names successfully.
