Windows 7 Computer Management missing Properties

By gary.giordano ·
In Windows XP I was able to Manage another computer then right click on the copmputer name then left click on Properties then I would view the computer discription of that remote computer.
How can I now do this in Windows 7 with the properties selection now missing or how can I get that back?

Thank you

I have the exact same difficulty. Have you ever found a resolution to this missing functionality in Windows 7?

Try this out...

Try and do a "System Restore" to see if that works, if not try the instructions below:

1) Click Start and type: "compmgmt.msc", in the Search box.

2) Click "compmgmt", to launch the Computer Management.

Do a new account (not an admin account) to see if that also helps you.

I have the same question as Gary and I don't think this answer applies. I can't do a System Restore in my corporate environment and when I open compmgmt.msc, there is no New Account option and that makes no sense anyway. I'm connecting to a remote pc with my admin account trying to information about the remote system. I don't need to create any kind of account.
