When Computer and HomeGroup names are changed, they are also changing in Start Menu also (Start Button - Right Panel), but Control Panel and Network is not changing does anyone know why?

Hello IMAyNeed,

They are not changed in the Start Menu since the name in that location has to be changed in another unknown registry location than what are in the tutorials for changing their names in the navigation pane and desktop icon.

I'll look into it to see if I may be able to track it down, and post back if able to later.
