Network Devices dont appear in "Windows Network"
« on: 2022-01-11 04:54:39 »
Hello together,

I cant scan my shared NW devices like NAS other PC's etc. I use Win10. The only folder which appears is a local shared folder of the PC where TB is installed.
The devices are in the same network and workgroup. No problem to find em in FileExplorer.

Thank you
Marc

But does the network show in the tree panel at all? If not, see Options | Preferences | Disks & Folders | Turn off "Do not show network branch".

If the network does show, but not any shared drives or devices within it, go to the same dialog and try tagging the option "Public Locations" in the lower right corner.

If that still doesn't help, could it be that you're running ThumbsPlus from an account that has no access to those locations?

As a work around, have you tried to map those locations to drive letters?

Hello Daan,
the network is shown in the tree panel. Public locations was also ticked before (default). Only the shared folders of my own PC are listed. Weird.
Yes, sure to map as drive is possible but not really wanted..
