Windows 10 X64 Home can't see server shares by name when user first tries for the day.

I have a client in a non-domain Windows server environment.  Every morning, one of the workstations, running Windows 10 Home Edition X64, patched to 1803, can't see the shares on either of the two servers.  The persistent share connection returns a "Cannot access \\server\share".  I can get to the shares if I put in the IP address but not by name.  I can browse the internet with no problem.  Once I ping the servers IP, I can then get to the server shares by name.  We have verified that the ethernet card has the "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is disabled.
Any thoughts on what else may cause this?
Thanks

it should be a name resolving issue.

make sure you have NETBIOS over TCP/IP enable for the network adapter in use, also make sure IPv6 is in use. you may simply run Home Group troubleshooting wizard to fix the issue.

Upgrading to Windows Pro was what I suggested in the first post here.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
