    Have you turned on Network Discovery? Is the network location set to Private, Work or Public? Make sure it's not set for Public.

    You can also create shortcuts to the computer or browse manually. In the Run or Search box type \\nameofcomputer and press Enter to view it. You can also right click and create a shortcut to the shared folder or create a new shortcut that points to that's computer's name. You can also map the shared folder to a drive letter in My Computer.

    That's odd that you cannot access it by name, are the computers on the same network? What is the IP address of each computer?

    I think I have this solved, I was typing the computer name incorrectly in the search box, however, the computer still does not show up in the network folder?
    Thanks for your help, at least now I can connect to the shared drive I needed to connect to.

    I personally recommend and always setup desktop shortcuts or mapped drives to shared folder and not rely on a computer showing up in the network list, this method works all the time as long as a folder is shared correctly.
