I have had an irritating problem for the last few days as the Shared section in the Finder sidebar is missing. I have tried rebooting & restarting Finder without success. I can connect with Screen Sharing from Finder > Go > Connect to Server

Mojave 10.14.6

Any suggestions?

Yes. Checked & unchecked & checked again several times but nothing changes.

I'm wondering if some preference file has got corrupt. I tried deleting ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist & com.apple.sidebarlists.plist but none of the sidebar preferences changed.
