In file explorer under network I have a computer listed(dell518) that I no longer have. Would like to remove... right click doesn't show option to delete/remove.

thanks

You should be able to right-click and select Disconnect, but failing that take a note of the Drive Letter assigned to the Dell518 then:
  • Type cmd into Cortana search field and press Enter
  • At the command prompt type the following:

    Code:
    net use X: /delete

    Note: Replace X with the drive letter associated with your Dell518

    Press Enter to execute the command. You'll get a confirmation whether it successfully completed.

Regards,

Hmm.

If you type regedit into the Cortana search field and press Enter to open the Registry Editor, do you see your Dell 518 listed at this location?

On the left pane expand the hives to this location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MountPoints2

On the left pane double-left-click on MountPoints2 to expand. If you see the Dell 518 listed as a sub-directory of the MountPoints2 hive, right-click on it and select Delete, then close Registry Editor, and restart computer.

this is not from Windows 10 but your router instead. I have several PC's show up in the Network list that either have been renamed or no longer valid. Usually a restart of the router clears the Network cache there and the list will be rebuild with the actual PC's connected to it.
Has always worked for me.

I usually change login for MS Account to Local Admin. and then do not select sharing.... reboot, then reboot and signin with MS Account and all the Shares on Network are gone. (except my Computer)
when i have full network sharing on I have 2 desktops and 2 Tablets) current is only My Computer.
