Changing computer name RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I notice that there is an option to rename the PC on my hub computer. Actually I would like to do so. Is it safe? Are there any repercussions, like is the PC still identified the same way? I apologize in advance if this question appears somewhat naive.

  • Sure, though it may cause network references you may have set from other PCs to Shares on that PC to need to be recreated.

    You can do the same thing by going to Properties for System in Control Panel. It renames the PC to whatever you wish.

    As far as OneCare is concerned, the name can change as many times as you wish. :-)
