Can the name you give your PC have embedded blanks within the name?

If anyone knows for sure.

Or, get to a command prompt and issue:

ECHO %computername%

Thanks folks.

IIRC, if you put blanks in, doesn't Windows then change that to a hyphen??

GOOD news as I'm tired of this massive .bat script and thought I'd have to update it to take into account embedded spaces in a directory node.

The answer as had been said earlier is "No". But why don't you try it out and see it for yourself?
