Windows 7: Microsoft Windows Network in Win 7

14 Sep 2016   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64,
Microsoft Windows Network in Win 7

in XP explorer, press Network, then Microsoft Windows Network and you get the workgroups
eg: Sales [3 computers] Research [2 computers] Boss [2 computers]

But when you press Network in Win 7 there is no display of the workgroups , just a bunch of computers.

Is there a way to change Win 7 to the XP functionality? Or A 3rd party program to do this?
