How to change the computer name as seen on the network in Windows 8.


  1. Your steps worked (with one small caveat) but you need to speak up! I turned the volume controls on both YouTube and on my PC all the way up and could barely hear you. "Mumbling" is not a good thing when creating a "how to" video.

    Oh… and that small caveat… After opening the "Control Panel", "System and Security", then finally "System", you say to click on "Change Settings"… I was a little confused when getting that far but not seeing the "Change Settings" button…

    The problem was that the active window was not large enough. The "Change Settings" button is hidden until the "System" window is dragged a little wider. That might be a bit of good information to add to the video as well.

    Other than that, the video was great and gave the information needed.

  2. LOL u really think thats the best u can do? I just bought an Asus with an i7 32GB Ram 1TB and comes with NVIDEA 680GTX, cost me about $1,400 with a 32 inch monitor. Check me out! Plus Asus is made for Gaming only, 50x better than Alienware, and you should know Alienware is garbage. Everyone should know that. 😉 Don't feel bad!
