Windows 10 to Windows 7 networking issues

Hello,

Now, W10 doesn't even see the Homegroup as joinable and doesn't show the W7 machine as a network device in explorer. It wouldn't let me browse to W7 admin share manually by computer name, but it worked with an IP address. Conversely, W7 can see W10 fine in explorer by computer name.
W7 machine hosting music files for Sonos works fine, so with all of the above said, I tend to think the issue lies with networking on the W10 machine. The last time I did a fresh install of Windows on the W10 machine was when I went from Windows 7 to Windows 8, so it's gone through 8.1 and 10 upgrades since then. My main questions are can anyone suggest steps for me to take to troubleshoot these issues, and are there any options short of a reset or reinstall that would blast out my Windows 10 network components so I could just start fresh with those parts instead of all of Windows?

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
