    Ok a little more information.  What is the "it" you are using to view the description of domain computers?

    When I view the network in Windows 7 Under computer it lists the Computer Name but I don't see anywhere to show the description of the computers on the Domain.

    Accepted Solution

    I actually just figured out a work around sense it looks like Windows 7 they took out the description field in the network view.  If you make a shortcut when viewing your entier netowrk on a WIndows XP machine.  Then copy that shortcut to your Windows Vista or Windows 7 machine you will see the description of your network computers.
