Question : netbios over tcp/ip disabled in ipconfig but enabled in properties – cannot browse the lan by computer name
Other computers in the office can open the same network share. The laptop’s TCP properties are set to enable NetBios over TCP/IP but when ipconfig all is run, it indicates that NetBios over TCP/IP is disabled.

There will be a series of these with a GUID (long number), they are created when you add and delete adapters.

If it is not present, which is the case if it has never been successfully enabled on that adapter right click in the appropriate window on the right and choose new DWORD, name it NetbiosOptions, and set the value to 1. You may have to reboot.
If you need help locating the GUID, the following may be helpful.

I assume you can connect to the share or map it by IP:
