Find the Master Browser on a Windows 7 machine.
for /f “delims=\= ” %C in (‘net view ^| find “\\”‘) do @echo -Checking %C && @nbtstat -a %C | find “MSBROWSE”
Note: You may have to run this command more than once if a browser election is taking place.
*Note2: If you came here because the other computers on the network are disappearing randomly, try disabling your “DNS Client” service and see if that helps.
*Note3: If you are still having problems, see my post on disabling Bonjour. It really seems to mess things up at times.
net stop “bonjour service”
To disable the service:
sc config “bonjour service” start= disabled
FORCE A PC TO BE MASTER BROWSER
It should be set to Auto. Then you can add the value IsMasterBrowser and set it to 1 to make that machine a master browser.
