How to enable or not NetBIOS in Windows 10

In Windows 10 there are various protocols created so that the system and its components are able to interact with numerous extra functions and services. One of these protocols is NetBIOS. NetBIOS (Network Basic Input / Output System), is a protocol which allows applications that are on different computers to establish communication with each other within a local area network (LAN)..

 

This protocol is already enabled by default on network cards in Windows 10 systems and its mission is to provide session services that are integrated into layer 5 of the OSI model, that is, it allows sharing of network resources and enables the option to establish the session and keep network connections active.

 

 

Currently it is a protocol that has little use and it is for this reason that TechnoWikis will explain how to deactivate it or activate it if it is the case..
