Windows 7: How to show the name of the computer instead of the word “computer”?

How to show the name of the computer instead of the word “computer”?

How to show the name of the computer instead of the word “computer”?

“Rename” is an option! Is there a better practice to show the name of the computer with other way?

Does renaming the computer affect software installed or other functions? Is it safe to rename it? Consequences?

Thank you

Best

Jamal

Hello Jamal,

The "Computer" folder name isn't the same as the actual computer name in your second screenshot.

It's completely safe to rename your "Computer" folder using the way in your first screenshot to any name you like since it's only a folder name.
