Computer description in Network places
How can I see the computer descriptions in network places in Vista? We have a
naming system for all pc's but hard to differentiate when I can't see the
computer description. Thanks for your help.

I was never able to get this working natively on my Vista64 box. However
you can create a shortcut in XP and copy it to Vista and it works great.

Open My Network Places on a XP machine and expand Entire Network
and MS Windows Network. Then right drag your Domain to your desktop and
select create shortcut. Finally copy that shortcut to your Vista box,
double click and see the description in details view!
