Windows 7: Workgroups are not grouped In w7 like XP?

Workgroups are not grouped In w7 like XP?

I 'm new to windows7...I used the “at work” option to setup my workgroup during installation,
we are peer to peer without domain. In XP Pro I'm used to clicking on "my network places", then clicking on "view workgroup computers" to see my group, now I don't see a workgroup option it just expands every computer in the system without grouping them, very frustrating to wait for them to load then scroll thru them all to try to find a computer in my group. Any help with this?

Open Start/Network and then click View/Sort By/Workgroup or other choice as you desire.

Also, remember you are not in XP. Win 7 is in reality a whole new operating system compared to the nine year old XP. You have to start looking at things just a little differently with Win 7. Leave XP and Vista in the past.

Good Luck, and Welcome to the "Seven Forums."
