When Toniq help with support we will often ask to be connected to a particular computer.  We will give the name of the computer (e.g. DESKTOP-6457) but this can differ from the familiar name you use for that PC (e.g. Dave’s computer) or the workstation name you normally see within Retail (e.g. Retail1). It can be very confusing!  Here are a couple of ways to help you find the actual computer name….



From within Retail


From any ‘main’ menu of Retail where you have the option F10 About select F10



Look for “This computer:” and the name to the right is the name of the computer you are currently on.




From within Windows (maybe you can’t start Retail)


On your keyboard press the Windows key + R



When the run box appears type in msinfo32 and click on OK.



Now look for Item called System Name. The Value to the right is the name of the computer you are currently on.
