    Click on the Desktop. In the upper left hand corner click on the work 'Finder'. In the drop-down select "Preferences". In there put a checkmark on showing your hard disks on the desktop.

    The hard disk name looks like it has been changed. You can click on the words on the hard drive and rename the hard drive.

    This is incorrect. celticpride678 is spot-on. To change the name of your computer, go to System Preferences then Network.

    Thanks, LPZ... I'm not at a Mac so I had to do it from memory. My memory must have failed me. :p

    Sorry - brain spasm yesterday

    For whatever reason at the moment of posting my brain went far, far, south and left my fingers to type a dumb thread here. I wasn't thinking computer name at that time.

    Sorry for the posting. Nothing more to see here.
