Few days ago one my room-mate asked me how to change his name in IP Messenger? I thought it would be simple but when I tried, I came to know that it is not that easy for a normal user (& very DIFFICULT for a newbie in windows). I thought for a while, but couldn’t get any solution. My room-mate was like “What a Computer Engineer? shame on you.” I also felt ashamed of mine, so I decided to find it. Yesterday, while playing with some properties of Control Panel, I found the solution. Here it is:
* CHANGE HOST NAME :
1] Right click “Computer” -> Properties, One window will appear giving “Basic information about your Compute”
2] On left panel, click “System Protection” go to “Computer Name” -> “Change”. In this window give desired name in “computer Name” field.
See the change.
* CHANGE THE USER NAME :
Go to “Control Panel” -> User Accounts -> Change your account name.
Restart the computer and see the change.
I have tried this on Windows 7, anyone with Windows XP & Vista try this and post your answers.
