Yet again very niche, but not so unique that it doesn’t require a PSA. If your own computer is not showing up in the Win 10 Network Window, you may want to attempt a network reset as described here: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/81e1c55f-3bf7-4e1f-aef6-01ee4a3cac07/shared-windows-10-pc-not-showing-up-in-local-network-on-the-same-pc. If that doesn’t work and if you’re lucky, your problems might all go away with the next Windows update. Barring that, I’ve discovered a rare bug that will cause your own PC to disappear from the Network Window under very improbable circumstances. If you go to folder Properties>Sharing>Advanced Sharing and Share this folder and Add a Share name that’s the same as one of the network’s usernames, the computer with the offending folder goes MIA in the Network Window.
Again, I know this won’t affect many users, but if I can help just one and keep them from pulling their hair out, it will be worth the short time it took to post this! Hope it helped!
