Network Environment XP style on W2k8 Server

February 22, 2013

In the past I had the intension to always use the Comments property of a PC to fill in the name of the User and Department.

The benefit was that it showed up in the Explorer Network Environment.

But in the Windows 2008 server and Windows 7 Clients that DESCRIPTION column had disappeared Sad smile

Solution:

Just copy the Network Environment Shortcut to the Windows 7 clients or W2K8 Server Desktop and your are off again.

I hope this can help some more people manage there PC’s in a network.
