    Default Network & Fileshare Issue

    I have 4 systems here running Win11.
    2 desktops & 2 laptops.

    All are on the default workgroup.
    All have the same advanced sharing settings.
    One laptop cant be seen by any of the others, although it can see all the others.

    Check to see if the Connection is either Private or Public Various ways, scroll down a little to check Via Settings : https://www.thewindowsclub.com/how-t...ype-in-windows

    If its On Public other computers wont see it. Needs to be PRIVATE.

    That's what it was.
    Wonder how it managed to set itself up differently to the others.

    Many thanks.

    Sometimes when connecting to a LAN (usually 1st time) When the window pops out asking to share if you dont click yes or no fast enough it can set to Public if not selected. Not always, can also be some other device syncing and causing the switch OR for some other unknown reason.

    Its damn annoying when things change and you cant find out why
