  • Description Tab in Network Neighborhood

    Hi,

    I wonder if someone ever did it before. What I'd like to do is to add Description Tab in network neighborhood to add descriptions for each computer in the network. Yes, I know that I can add a comment but this is not that I'm expecting. Because if I add a comment to a computer in network it's shown up as comment(computer name). I'd like to leave computer name as is and add a description tab.
    Any idea?

    Would you rather it show as Computer name(comment)?

      Thank you, I know about this, I'm using that at the moment.

      I've searched many sites and asked other forums, no one knows.

      Is there a way to modify\add a key in the registry that is in charge of adding Description tab?
      May be there is a setting in the explorer?

        What do you mean by "Description tab"?

          Ok. I'll try to explain in more details.

          consider, I have 200 computers in my network places and when I open Network Neighborhood I see:

          Computer1
          Computer2
          ...
          Computer200

          When I add a description:

          Computer1(comment)
          Computer2(comment)
          ...
          Computer200(comment)

          I'd like it to be:

          Name column...............................Comment column

          Computer1......................................"Co mment"
          Computer2......................................"Co mment"
          ...
          Computer200..................................."Com ment"


          i just want a description to appear in a separate column, Is it possible?

            The comments column is a seperate column on my Windows 2003 server. Is it not for you? Can you go to the View menu, slect "Choose details" and add the Comments column?

              Yes, I have comment column.

              I don't want computers to be shown as ComputerName(description) in the Name column and the description again in the Comments column.

              I'd like a ComputerName in one column and a description in another column separately.
