How to change Computer Name after installed WinXP
I recently re-installed windows XP on one of my computers. During installation I dint created user account or set password. Even I dint changed the computer name. It installed with the default computer name which we get during the installation. Now as the system is completely ready, I found a folder named ?So and So? (for example) under Documents and Settings. I want to change its name but it is not allowing me to do the same. I mean I?m not able to change the folders name.
What is wrong? Please help.
Re: How to change Computer Name after installed WinXP
The folder name you are talking about is the not the computer name dude, it is the User Account name on which you are logged in. In order to change the Computer name, right click my computer, go to properties and click Computer Name tab and change from there. And if you need to change that particular folder name you will need to rename that particular user account from Control Panel.
