Need to Display the "Computer Description" column (like I could in XP)
In Windows XP, the "Computer Description" field (found at My Computer
> Properties > Computer Name > Computer Description) could be viewed

as the "Comments" column in "My Network Places."

With Windows Vista, however, I can NOT find a way to display the
Computer Description column when viewing the list of computers using
the "Network" function.

Is this possible in Vista?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks,
Jessi

This does not appear to be possible in Vista.

The way that all the new network windows are arranged is a complete mess in
Vista, and I miss being able to have network locations and FTP sites in My
Network Places.
