Hi everyone, I would like to know if there is a way to access another computer documents shared in a network using only numbers instead of the whole IP address? example I'm able to access the documents of computer #2 using its IP Address \\, the path address is too long, I would like it shorten it by just typing only last number which is 2 instead of \\ in a run command, the same with other computer instead of their IP Address I would like to replace it with only the last number of every computer within the network. 

Many thanks.
