Unable to see systems on My Private home network

Ever since Microsoft removed “Homegroup” from Windows 10 I have had issues with seeing the computers on my home private network under “Network” in Windows Explorer. My network has a desktop running Windows 10 Version 1903 using WI-FI to the router, a laptop running Windows 10 Version 1903 using Ethernet connection to the router, another laptop running Window 10 Version 1809 Using WI-FI to the router. I have tried to implement every suggested change to Windows Services, Network Discovery, etc that others have offer with absolutely no success. Also since Micro software removed “Homegroup” from Windows 10 “Homegroup” still appears on any folder that I have marked to be shared and I have not be able to find out why I cannot remove “Homegroup” and am perplexed as to why Microsoft still shows this when it had abandon “Homegroup”. As a fall back I am able to see all my systems by highlighting “Network” in the Windows Explorer search bar and typing in \\computername\.

If anyone can offer any help with/suggestions for my frustrations with Microsoft I would be most appreciative.
