Hello All,

I just bought an eMac from someone and its named to they're name
(ie: Jane Doe's Computer) and I was wondering if there was any way to rename it to "Shane Eliason's Computer"

Thanks

System Preferences > Sharing

It's in Computer Name.

Open System Preferences, click on Sharing, and you should be able to change your computer's name on the top.

EDIT: Eidorian beat me to it.

That would bug me too. Kinda like having a ex girlfriend come visit you at work everyday :mad:

If it were me, I'd run through the restore CDs that come with the system, they'll clean everything out and make it pristine :)

Good suggestion - who knows what else may be lurking on that machine... ;) :cool:

you can also make a new user and then delete the old one right? or thats not a good way? cause it didnt work when i tried changing it before so i just made a new user and deleted my main one

He's trying to change the computer name, not the user name.
