Change your computer name in Windows

If you made a really fresh install of windows, or if you just have an urge to make your computer more you, or even if you just bought a new machine you go to change the computer’s name. It’s mandatory.

Windows doesn’t ask you to do it upon a fresh installation, contrary to Linux. So let’s see how you can change your machine’s name in very easy steps.

On the start menu type: sysdm.cpl

01

As you can see the default name is everything but remarkable. So proceed and click Change

02

You’ll be prompted to change the machine’s name.

03

Yes, it’s LoTR reference

04

Upon reboot, your machine will carry it’s new name proudly trough those networks. Easy. ^_^
