Win10 Pro workstations not seeing other workstations in network neighborhood

Just installed 3 Win10 Pro workstations on our local windows domain.  Workstations joined the domain just fine.  Users logged on to the workstations fine.  All 8 printers in the office showed up on each workstation without issue.   Problem is that none of the workstations, nor the two Servers, are displayed on any of the Win10 workstations.  How do we get the workstations & Servers to display on the Win 10 workstations ??

To explain: you don't need to see them in order to be able to access them. By default, for security reasons, no ports are open that you don't need and visibility requires additional ports to be open - that's why.

Also, make sure File and Print Sharing is allowed through the Windows Firewall.  If you are unsure if you have the right settings, try switching the Windows Firewall off for a few minutes just to test.  Will help narrow down the problem.

Why would he need file and printer sharing enabled? He is the client, not the server. Leave it off.

If Network Discovery is ON for all computers and if you are using Windows 10 version 1607 and if the firewalls are not blocking anything, it should work. I can see clients with my Windows 10 machine: WSD and NETBIOS.

However, as noted above "seeing computers" is a Holy Grail not needed.

James, please look at my comment. It does not help to name "main contributors" if their comments don't apply. I don't care for points but for spreading suggestions that apply.
