A Windows 95 folder that lists computers, printers and other resources connected to your local-area network (LAN). By default, a Network Neighborhood icon appears on your desktop, and the folder is also accessible from within the Windows 95 Explorer. The Network Neighborhood is designed to replace the drive mapping older system, which associates a letter with each shared disk drive. Many programs, however, still require drive mapping.
The Network Neighborhood serves no purpose if your computer is not connected to a LAN, except that it is required to link two computers using Windows 95's Direct Cable Connection (DCC) feature.
