How to Change Computer Name in Windows 7

When Windows 7 is installed on a computer, right before completion of installation it asks user to assign a name to the computer. Naming convention that Windows 7 follows is ComputerName-PC which means that the first part (before ‘-‘) will be the name specified by the user and the text after ‘-‘ will be ‘PC’ as a default value. Many new users do not care about this during installation and they simply type the desired name and after some time they realize that the computer name is not appropriate as per the requirements. In this case, as a computer administrator, you can follow the below steps to change the computer name:

1 Logon to the Windows 7 computer with administrative credentials.
