Here is what I have found to work for me. I now have all my computers, desktop and two laptops seeing each other and sharing their folders. I do have Windows 10 Pro 20H2 on all three.

 

First, I went into the Control Panel and set the following. Under uninstall a program I clicked on Turn Windows features on or off. I checked SMB 1.0. See image below for what is selected/checked. Check all your computers on your network to make sure this is selected.

Second, I chose what I want to share by clicking on it then right clicking it and clicking on Properties>Advanced Sharing, check Share this folder>Set Permissions>OK.

Third, In the image below I clicked on Share under Network Path, chose Everyone as who I wanted to share with, added that, gave read/write permission and clicked on share again.

This image shows that the sharing of my downloads worked.

It's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice.
