Name of Windows 10 background service needed for file sharing network?

I am trying to think of the name of the Window 10 background service which needs to be activated for Windows 10 file sharing to take place. It's not "Computer Browser" service btw. It's another service on Windows 10 which to my knowledge is not enabled by default. Assuming you have all other settings for file sharing configured, enabling this service magically shows all other computers on the network*. But what is the name of this service?

(I am referring here to a Workgroup network and NOT a Domain network)
