    A new “known issue” note was posted in the answers forum:

    File Explorer may not detect other devices or perform file sharing on the local network when running Windows 10 version 1803

    Justin posts:

    Microsoft is aware of reports that devices running Windows 10 version 1803 cannot connect to other devices on their home network and is investigating the issue.

    You can resolve this problem by setting some services to Automatic (Delayed Start) and restarting Windows:

    1. Press the Windows Key and R at the same time to bring up the Run dialog.
    2. Type services.msc in the Run dialog and press Enter.
    3. For each of the following services, locate the service in list, right-click the service and select Properties.  Then set the Startup type to Automatic (Delayed Start) and select Apply.
      • Computer Browser (Browser)
      • Function Discovery Provider Host (FDPHost)
      • Function Discovery Resource Publication (FDResPub)
      • Network Connections (NetMan)
