[Samba] Browsing shares of a server

With the removal of SMB1 (by default) and everywhere (e.g. Windows), I 
noticed that when I open up a computer (\\computer-name) I can see the 
shares that I have access to... that is, from a Windows Explorer (in my 
case Win10).  Is there any way to get something like this working using 
smbclient without SMB1?

All this is without (AFAIK) enabling the Function Discovery stuff.  How 
does Windows do it?

It was easy with SMB1, how does Windows (and MacOS for that matter) 
discover shares that are available without explicitly specifying the 
share name that are available for a host?  And of course, is there 
anyway that "protocol" could be handled somehow in smbclient?
