    Bought a used MBP. Very sweet computer. Updated tiger OS.

    In the finder, on the left sidebar, the computer icon has a name of the old owner.

    How do I change it to my name?

    Thanks,
    TC

    Thanks Swift...
    That was what I was looking for.

    I wanted to hear an answer before I changed it...yesterday I tried changing the name to the home folder and mucked things up. Fixed it back, but was gun shy about changing the computer name.

    Thanks,
