Am I on the the domain? How can I tell?

To ascertain whether you are on the domain:

Windows 7

  1. Click on the start button and right-click on Computer, then choose Properties.
    Start Menu

  2. Look under the Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings section for
    System Settings

Windows 8.1/10

  1. At the Windows logon screen if you see "Sign in to: ATHENA.MIT.EDU", your computer is joined to the WIN domain. You may by confused by seeing ATHENA.MIT.EDU, but this appears because of cross-realm authentication.
  2. Or you can logon as a local account and bring up the System Properties by right-clicking This PC from the Windows file explorer navigation pane or from the desktop. Or press the Windows key and Break key to bring up the System Properties. In the Domain field you should see WIN.MIT.EDU.
