Quickly tracking down servers on a network

If you're system is connected to a large network with many servers and you need to quickly locate a specific server, you don't have to open Network Neighborhood and scan through the list. Simply right-click on the Network Neighborhood icon and select the Find Computer... command on the shortcut menu. When the Find Computer dialog box appears, just type in the name of the server in the Named text box and click the Find Now button. In a moment, you'll see the server you need to access. Best of all, your search will be saved, so next time you can use the pull-down list to select the same server instead of typing in the name.
