Win XP computer name/description

By jetbonami ·
While browsing in XP's network neighborhood the computer description precedes the actual machine name which is annoying when trying to locate a PC. How can I invert this so that the machine name show's up before the description? We are in the process of converting OS's at my company.

Thanks all!!

You can change this behavior by selecting View->Choose Details or just drag the description heading to the far right so that it is after the computer name.

The machine name and description are both in the name field. When first installing Win xp you are asked to provide a machine name and description, with previous Win OS,s you only see a machine name.
