I have added another computer to my home network. I am having some problems with their names.

When you install XP there is a time that you get to a page, which has the computer name and you can change it if you want to. It is the same area where you can put in Administrator name and or password.

Question is how do I get back to that page so I can change the names?


Thank You

Go to Start> Control Panel and click on User Accounts. Under the heading "Or pick an account to change" click on the name that you wish to change, click on the option to Change my name. Type in the name that you want to use and click on the Change Name button.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
