    Is There A Workaround To Gain Access to Management Console?


    Hello all,
    I'd like to change the network name of my ethernet connection. I've read that it can easily be changed via the Management Console, but Windows 10 Home doesn't support access to it. Is there any other way to do it?

    I appreciate the prompt reply, but I want to change the NETWORK name, not the connection name. In the screenshot I've highlighted what I'd like to change.
