For quite some time we've had a media server setup on Windows 10 that has worked flawlessly (more or less). However, after some recent Microsoft updates something changed dramatically that is causing annoyance.
The best way to explain it is to explain what I see:
I load File Explorer and under Network there are several entries under "Computer" at the top of the right content window.
In this case those items are my Son's desktop, the "Media-Server", my desktop and our Nvidia Shield (just called "SHIELD" here).
However, neither the Media-Server link or the link to my son's desktop do anything. In point of fact, the Media-Server link wasn't even showing up until I turned down Windows Firewall (which always seems the be a major thorn in the side when it comes to ease of use). Now that it's there, when I click it it just says, "Windows cannot access \\MEDIA-SEVER".
I can access the server by manually going to it using the IP address, but that's less than optimal.
I also can't just right-click on Network (under Start menu) and choose Remote Desktop Connection like I used to be able to do.
Anyone have any ideas what either we or MS changed to screw this up?
