How to tell if your computer is a member of a domain

 

r-click My Computer | Properties | Advanced | Network ID

 

If you see something like this below (Domain is filled out, rather than workgroup), your computer is a member of a domain.If this is true, you really donít want to change it without full advice and concurrence of your system administrator at your home institute, domain membership is a property of a computer, not an account, and taking it out of the domain will make it difficult for you when you get back home.Iím assuming that the reason your laptop is a member of a domain is thatís how your system administrator wanted you to operate.
