How to Fix PCs No Longer Visible in Network After Windows 10 Version 1803 Upgrade
If you are running Windows 10 Version 1803 Upgrade, you may have had issues with the detection of PCs and devices in the local area network.

While there are plenty of possible explanations for PCs not showing up anymore when you try to access them, chance is high that a change in the Windows 10 version 1803 upgrade, is responsible for the issue.

Microsoft removed the Homegroup functionality from Windows 10 version 1803; the issue, however, may affect non-Homegroup PCs and PCs that used the Homegroup functionality that Windows provided.

Usually, you should be able to access devices in the network through their IP address or name, but this may not work properly anymore in Windows 10 version 1803.

Function Discovery Resource Publication is a networking service that ensures that devices are discovered in a local computer network. The service is set to manual both in Windows 10 version 1709 and Windows 10 version 1803, but it may not be started by the system anymore in Windows 10 version 1803. What you may want to do therefore is to change the startup type of the service to automatic.


1. Click Start Menu and type Services to open Services Manager.

2. Locate the Function Discovery Resource Publication service. Its status should be blank which means that is not running.



3. Double-click on the service to open its properties.



4. Click in the "Startup type" menu and switch startup to automatic.

5. Click on the OK button and restart the PC to apply the changes.
