Windows Explorer: "Network Discovery is Turned Off"

Tags Incident

Issue: When I click on the "Network" entry in Windows Explorer, I get this message: "Network discovery is turned off."

Environment: Windows, T: Drive, Network Share, Windows Explorer

Resolution: Expand the This PC entry in Windows Explorer (see red box below) to see network shares. Alternately, clicking This PC will display all drives attached to the computer. If you are off campus, you must be connected to VPN to access network drives through Windows Explorer. The "Network" shortcut is not used at UWRF.
