I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Why are you not shutting down that virtual machine and then try to change the name?
MARSPATHRetired EE/Computers/ITAuthor Commented:
When I shutdown Windows 10, 'Configure...' is no longer available - Parallels Desktop still running.

Shutdown Parallels 11 desktop - no help, now what?
Gerwin Jansen, EE MVETopic Advisor Commented:
And from the gear symbol, general tab, can you rename it there?
