My L590 is straight out of the box with no software installed. I have enabled network discovery and file and printer sharing but I cannot access other computers on my network.

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums.
Is there an error message when you're trying to access other computers in your network? Kindly tell us more details about the nature of the problem for us to further check.
You may run a system update using ThinkVantage app to keep drivers up to date.

Thank you for your reply. In fact I now don't believe it was anything to do with Lenovo or the hardware. It seems to have been a Windows issue. In case it is any help to others here is the detail:
In file explorer search bar, enter \\computername. After a long wait get the dreaded message "Windows cannot access \\Computername...". The only fix I could find was run gpedit.msc, navigate to Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\LanmanWorkstation. Change the setting for this to Enable insecure Logon. Did this on my three computers and now I can access all my shared folders. Many users, myself included, may think that this fix is not a really good idea, but it was the only way I could find to get access to my shared folders.
Thank you Lenovo forums
