Re: How to Search Contents of Network Files and Folders

If other computers on your network are running Windows XP and you don't see them in the Network folder, you may need to alter the workgroup name on those computers and turn on file and printer sharing from that. If your user name and password for the computer you are currently logged on to are dissimilar from those for the computer that you are annoying to access, you might be encouraged to enter your logon information. You can automatically connect to another computer on the network by store up your password. Check it out and reply.
