Hi,

In the search bar next to the Start menu, type regedit and click on it to open the registry editor.

Next, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Control > ComputerName > ComputerName. Double-click on the ComputerName key and edit the value by the new name.

Click Ok and restart the computer.
