It is easy to use so that “super” is attached, so we will deliver useful information that even middle and advanced level users should know. The 65th time introduces how to change "Computer Name".
There is no reason not to change!
Did you know that Windows computers have a "computer name"? . It is displayed on the network for identification or as a connection destination when connecting via Bluetooth. This time, I would like to introduce how to change this "computer name".
Isn't this name left as default (not bought and done)? Of course, it doesn't have to be changed, but it can be useful to do so. In the above-mentioned network, the same name may not be connected normally. In the case of Bluetooth connection, it is easier to find.
However, don't change it if your company's network says you shouldn't change your name.
You can check the computer name in "System" on the control panel. "System" can also be displayed by right-clicking on the desktop icon "PC" and selecting "Properties"
You can also check the “Version Information” in the settings, but this is “Device Name”
Let's change the "computer name". First, click “System” in “Settings”
Click “Version Information” on the left side of the window
When the version information is displayed, click "Rename this PC"
In the dialog that appears, enter the name you want to give. Only half-width alphanumeric characters and hyphens (-) can be used for names
Changes take effect after reboot
After rebooting, make sure the name has changed
If you change the name, it will be displayed with that name, for example, on the Bluetooth connection destination
