Windows 7: Network Mapping

21 May 2010   #1

Network Mapping

Is there a way in Windows 7 to have network mapping (network neighbourhood or network favorites) shown the same way as it used to be in XP ?

That is to say similarly as the attached screen shot where there are both domains and workgroups.

of course can..

To create your own network map, click on Start, then Control Panel, then Network and Internet, and finally Network and Sharing Center.
