that's all you need to do. i tried it and it stuck even when i restarted. i am assuming you are referring to using windows explorer...

errr, read it again

That's what I just told you how to do. In explorer, select the folder called, as you described it, "hound dog (lexy)" and right click on it. Select "rename", and then change it to what you want, as in your example, "lexy (hound dog)".

Unless you are using a different Windows Explorer than me, that's all you need to do.

Hmmmmmmmmm

That's not what I've asked.

It's imposible to rename a computer, it is not a folder,

it's something that is showed in explorer when you

browse a network (not your local harddisks), it is not a

resource that can be modofied, so...

It's about the way explorer display first the description,

then the name.

yikes.

sorry, i was thinking of Sharename/Computername, which of course you can rename in Explorer. In terms of description (computername), that's a tough one. I will look into it...

sorry for the misunderstanding!

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
