Just a little shortcut. I happened to be using a locked down Windows Vista computer that would not let me access the “properties” of the My Computer icon. I needed to change the computer workgroup, and could not seem to get into it. I looked to see if there was a registry entry to edit for workgroup, but instead came up with this alternative.
To edit the properites of My Comptuer in Windows Vista or Windows XP:
- Start > Run
- Enter: sysdm.cpl and hit enter
