For a consulting project, I recently had to join my laptop to an Active Directory domain at a client’s workplace. Suddenly, my home computers can no longer see the computer. I found that the laptop could see shared items on my home network, though.
I went to the “Network and Sharing Center” to see if there was some setting I had to tweak and found this:
