    Microsoft's Spring Creators Update for Windows 10, version 1803, is not out yet because of a last-minute delay caused by reliability issues that Microsoft detected before the rollout process.

    If you run the new version of Windows 10 already, for instance on a PC with an Insider Build installation of the new operating system version, you may have had issues with the detection of PCs and devices in the local area network.

    While there are plenty of possible explanations for PCs not showing up anymore when you try to access them, chance is high that a change in the Spring Creators Update version of Windows 10 is responsible for the issue.

    Microsoft removed the Homegroup functionality from Windows 10 version 1803; the issue, however, may affect non-Homegroup PCs and PCs that used the Homegroup functionality that Windows provided.

    Usually, you should be able to access devices in the network through their IP address or name, but this may not work properly anymore in Windows 10 version 1803.
