is there any way to change a workgroup name, short of creating an entirely new one (=not fun)?

thanks

Well... Yes? No? What do you mean? It's just a name, why would it be hard to "create" a new one? Just write the new name and you're done.

Ensure the new name is the default for all PC's in the workgroup too ;)

right click on "My Computer" and choose Properties
Click the "Computer Name" tab
Click the "Change" button
at the bottom of the next window you can change the Workgroup which your machine is a member of.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
