Connect Samba Server of Linux/Ubuntu to Windows PC

My Samba server usually have trouble detecting Windows PCs on the network. Instead of restarting the Ubuntu to hard refresh the list, just enter the computer name manually:

smb://<insert computer name>/

No need to wait for a correct list to show up.
