Function Discovery Resource Publication service set to Automatic seems to fix listing of workstations that drop off the Network list in Windows 10.
However, even when the service is running, we see some computers still falling off the list.
Then, restarting the service brings the computername back again right away.

If we can just focus on the issue, and not my dumb desires to have this work, are there any ideas?
All I can think of is a scheduled batch file to restart the service.  It doesn't appear that a reboot is necessary after the restart.
But, I believe that I've also seen workstations that address using IP addresses become confused by restarting this service.   I'm not sure about this....
