Windows Vista and Computer description
Hello, i have got a short question.

If you open your Windows Explorer on Windows XP, you will see under Network
the Computer description and the Computer Name. For Example:
Computername: PC1
Computer descrition: My Cmputer

On Windows XP you see
Explorer => Network
|-My Computer (PC1) My Computer

On Windows Vista you only see
Explorer => Network
|- ...
|- PC1

But i would like to see the Description of the Computer.
How can i configure this?

I hope anybody can help me.

Thanks
Björn

RE: Windows Vista and Computer description
I hope they fix this problem, it's been a while now since vista has been out
with alpha, beta, and RPM and still Microsoft never fixed the problem WHY?

Why can't I see the computers and their description in the network places
when on a vista running vista, but when I go in the printers, I then can see
the computer descriptions of the network printers that are my pc running
vista.

Whhy do they have it one place but not the other, brain farts M$.
