How to change name in IP Messenger?

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:


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.


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.

Thank you.

  1. There is another easy way that is right click on your IP Messenger system tray icon click settings a window will open select Basic/LAN Settings.In User Name field change your name.

    IP Messenger(Tray Icon)->Settings->Basic/LAN Settings->User Name

    You cannot change other people user name from your system which are in the IP Messenger list.They have to be change from that particular system.
