I do this remotely via a VNC client. My current tool of choice is UltraVNC. Just set a VNC server on each machine and have it run as a Windows service. Then you can control everything remotely (even reboot).
The My Computer settings are specific to each machine so I don't think you can access them via shortcut as you describe.

Thanks Bill. I've used VNC before but unfortunately it is freeware, which is against company policy (how stupid is that?) Do you know of any other way to remotely view a networked computer's drive mappings (ie c:, e:, f;)?

I think you can see it in the registry
I forget which Key it is, but it's somewhere in there.

Thanks, I'm a step closer. I can remotely connect to their registries, but I can't see their HKEY_CURRENT_USER. I found the mapping key on my own comp, can I find it anywhere else in their registry (I've looked around, to no avail)?

open the registry (REGEDIT)
FILE / CONNECT NETWORK REGISTRY
depending upon your setup you'll search AD for the computer you want..
this all depends on the remote registry service running on the remote computer...
or am I missing something here?
just my 2-cents

OK I've got it, the info was under "Local Users". Thanks.
