Windows PC cannot see other computers, but other computers can see Windows PC

My Windows 10 computer can no longer find my three Mac computers on my network. This was working before, but now it suddenly doesn't work.

The Mac computers can all see my Windows 10 computer and retrieve and move files on the Windows 10 computer, but this will not work from the Windows 10 computer. However, the Windows 10 computer can see other devices around the house such as ROKU's, TV's, printers, and other things. Just no computers.

I have worked on this for several hours following every suggestion I can find from Google and the Microsoft support team. So far none of the many setting changes have had no effect.

    It may seem that the issue may be related to some setting or configuration of the Mac devices, for which I would recommend to post your question in a Apple or Mac forums since their community may be more experienced in that specific issue from the Mac system perspective.

    From my personal experience, I can share that in a similar situation my issue was related to the connection to the workgroup on the Mac device. Just reselecting the workgroup name from the drop-down menu in System Preferences -> Network -> advanced and I could again see the Mac device from the Windows 10 after a refresh.
