How to See Users Logged Into Computers Over a Network

Save

A network links several computers and users together through a router, allowing them to share resources, files and Internet connections. Each computer on the network has its own Windows name, providing identification while connected to the network. You can view the network window on your computer to see a list of computers that are logged into the network, based on the computer's name.

Windows XP

  • Click the "Start" button to launch the start menu.

  • Click the "My Network Places" icon on the start menu. This will launch the network window.

  • Click "View workgroup computers" from the left pane. This will open up a new window that shows a list of users connected to the network by computer name.

Windows Vista and Windows 7

  • Click the "Start" button to launch the start menu.

  • Type "Network" into the text box and allow the search results to appear in the box above the text box.

  • Click "Network" under "Programs" to open the network window. This will show a list of users connected to the network by computer name.
