    Change the name of the internet icon on the lock screen in Windows 10


    Can we change the internet name on the Windows 10 lock screen? I visited many places but could not find a solution. Is there any regedit setting that we can make this setting? on the lock screen, we can hide/delete things such as ease of access, section of power buttons, internet icon.

    You can rename the Ethernet or WiFi LAN in the Network settings. Is this what you mean? There is no "name" showing on my lock screen for the internet connection icon at the lower right corner.

    It has no name. That's what I show, also. Do you mean you want to change the icon itself? There is no displayed name to change.

    English may be writing this in Windows 10. Not sure, I'm using Windows 10 in German. And on top of this icon ''Internet'' writes, I want to change the text that says ''Internet'' there. I can't get an image when I'm on the Windows 10 lock screen. I don't have the phone.

    Oh, I see now. That's just the pop up text telling you what the icon will do if clicked. You'd need to change your Display Language to German for that to change. Let me see if I can get one of our German speaking members to assist. Be patient for a few minutes, until can respond, if he's on right now.
    @Kari, can you help here? Thanks, TC.

    The system display language may be set for German but the system locale can still be English. Sounds like you may need to change your System Locale.


    The system locale controls the language used when displaying text on programs that do not support Unicode.

    I checked these settings and confirmed that it was in German. Just, Beta: Use Unicode UTF-8 for worldwide language support, is not enabled.. Could this issue have anything to do with this option?

    Hello @Bromance902,

    The Ethernet bit in the pop-up Connect to Ethernet, is the name of the network adapter you will connect to if you click on the Network icon.

    If you wanted to change the name of Ethernet, then you would need to change the name of that network adapter to what you wanted instead.
