How To Find Your Computer’s Name

Posted on June 26, 2010. Filed under: Easy Tricks using Windows, Uncategorized |

You can try typing in Computer Name in the Start Menu’s run box.

If this doesn’t bring up the right application go to Control Panel> System> Advanced> Computer Name tab

This will tell you your Computer name and whether the machine is in a workgroup or a domain environment. A work group is loosely associated computers, each of which is its own security authority. A domain is a group of computers that is tightly connected. It has a single authority (domain controller) that manages security for all the computers.

It is especially important that you know your computer’s name in order to use the command prompt or other computer resources.
