How-to Find computer name windows 10


Recommended Posts

I have done a search in this category to attempt to find my answer but, it came up with nothing so, I have started a new topic.

I am new to this forum and hope to be here often not only for help but, maybe to offer help. My name is Donna aka gramme and I live in Barefoot Bay, Florida. I have been working with and on computers for over 35 years so I am not a newbie. I folllow instructions well.

My OS is Windows 10 HOME and I have been trying to locate my computer name but, no success can anyone help with this question.  I sure would appreciate your time.

Thanks

Donna aka gramme

The topic "Find computer name" I post just a little while ago and when I went to EDIT it this is the message I received:

PS...wouldn't you know it! I have looked for several hours and right after posting this question I have FOUND my computer name, right where I have looked several times but didn't click on the tab in system properties. Thank you to anyone who have viewed this and hope they read this reply so I don't waste anyone's time.

Hey there @Gramme71 - Looks like you answered your own question! That said, here's a few tips which I found quickly on gpost.

 

Here's a quick way to find your computer name (and rename it for that matter) - http://www.groovypost.com/howto/rename-windows-10-computer/

Another option is to get into a Command Line (Windows Key + R, Type CMD). From there type:

net user

This will also display your machine name.

Hope that helps!
