Every now and then when setting up a new Apple Computer the name given to the computer that is viewed over the network and for the computer itself isn’t exactly the way we’d like it to be. Fortunately, changing your computers name is quick and easy.
Steps to Rename Your Mac
To change the name of your computer on your Mac:
- Open System Preferences
- Select Sharing under Internet & Network
- Under Computer Name: Change the name to what ever you’d like to call your Mac
Your computer should now appear as you’ve named it on your home network and when displayed internally on your computer. This should work with all types of Macs including iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac mini and Mac Pro.
