How to get SMB2 or SMB3 working

I have Win10 installed, and I have a media player on the network running LibreElec with KODI.

On Win10 I have the Downloads folder shared on the network, and on the Kodi system, I have to change the settings from using a minimum of SMB2 down to SMB1, then manually add the shared folder using the IP address and share folder name. Browsing won't find it at all. It use to, back when the media server was running Windows as well, but now, not at all.

How... on the Win10 system... do I get it to use SMB2 or SMB3?

Hi THRobinson75

Press Windows key + X
Click Windows PowerShell (Admin)

At the prompt, type:

Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters" SMB2 -Type DWORD -Value 1 –Force

Hit Enter

Exit PowerShell then restart.

Thanks... seemed to do the trick.

Any ideas why Win10 for me was defaulted to SMB1 and not SMB2 or 3?
