How to Log In to a Domain on Windows 7

A domain is used to group computers together and share information. Users who wish to join a domain need a user name and password provided by the domain administrator. Once procured, users can employ the user name and password to log in to a domain and access the information stored in the domain's common database. Windows 7 users can enable a domain on their computer and log in to it using the operating system's Computer settings.

  • Click on the "Start" button.

  • Right-click on "Computer."

  • Click "Properties."

  • Click "Change Settings" under the heading "Computer Name, Domain, and Workgroup Settings."

  • Click on the "Computer Name" tab.

  • Click "Change" next to the option labeled "To rename this computer or change its domain or workgroup, click Change."

  • Type the name of the domain you wish to connect to in the box under "Domain." Click the circle next to "Domain." Click "OK."

  • Type your domain user name and password into the boxes that appear. Click "OK." Click "OK" again.

  • Restart your computer.

  • Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys when prompted on the Windows login screen.

  • Click "Switch User." Click "Other User."

  • Type in your domain user name and password. Click the arrow next to the password box to log in to the domain.
