Where does my Work Group go?

I use Win XP Home Edition, I was able to START/MY COMPUTOR/MY NETWORK PLACES, but now there's nothing there.  If I VIEW WORKGROUP COMPUTERS, I find up different stations (as I call them).  Throught searching, I've found that my Workgroup is in Microsoft Windows Network, which is part of ENTIRE NETWORK, i.e. there's Microsoft Terminal Services, Microsoft Windows Network, and Web Client Network, and my group is in Microsoft Windows Network.  Also, my group is in both MY NETWORK PLACES, and in MICROSOFT WINDOWS NETWORK.  Why is that?  In the past, I've had my Work Group in only MY NETWORK PLACES, then I had it, after working with my computer, I had it only in MICROSOFT WINDOWS NETWORK.  Now, I have it in both:  i.e.  MY NETWORK PLACES and MICROSOFT WINDOWS NETWORK.  Where does MY WORKGROUP belong?  And how can I make sure that it goes there only, so that when I click MY COMPUTER, it'll appear in MY NETWORK PLACES only?  Please help.

simple way to go , is right click on "My workgroup" (in windows explorer) and choose snd to desktop (create shortcut)
then you just have to double click on the shortcut and it will open

But why is My WorkGroup listed in both My Network Places and in Microsoft Windows Network?  I must have done something wrong to install it twice or whatever.

I don't think so, but it's not hurting anything
