Windows 10 Network

Need help. Windows 10 v2004 on two machines 'A' and 'B'.

Following Wednesday's updates to A that machine no longer appears on my local network.

B can see itself in File Explorer and in my 2-pane file manager but cannot see A.

A cannot see itself, but can see B using these GUI file tools.

However, using the command prompt, B can read directories, copy files etc from A (and in the other direction).

I have checked all the networking settings on A - file & printer sharing, discovery, passwording off etc. They are all as they ought to be.

Any ideas ??
