Go to the windows icon (bottom right) then, right click 'my computer' then, left click 'change settings' then, left click 'change' then, change the computer name and follow the on screen prompts asking you to restart.

This will only work if you are an administrator of the machine that you are trying to change the name of.

Cheers

Click the Change... button.System Properties (sysdm.cpl)After changing the computer name, OK out
You will need to reboot for the change to take effect.
