    Computer Name Wrong in Homegroup But Right on Network?


    I have what I think is a simple problem.

    Here is a picture of the swapped names as I can't seem to find anybody else with this issue as I searched.

    How do I get clubairth1 out of clubairth2?
    What have I done wrong?
    Thanks for the help!

    Welcome to the TenForums @clubairth

    Are you using Homegroups to share information or are you logging on to machines to share?

    Are all the machines in the homegroup?

    If you look at this article it appears that Clubairth1 is part of a homegroup and I would say clubairth2 is where you set the homegroup up.

    Um... I don't see the issue. What exactly made you think that computer names are different? In both places in your screenshot I see exactly the same computer name - CLUBAIRTH1. The highlighted Clubairth2 part is not a computer name. It is your network name. It is the network that hosts your current homegroup.
