The other day I was writing a post, and my colleague tried sending me a few screenshots through AirDrop. All of them were alerted on my other colleagues’ Mac. The only reason was that we all use the same Mac name in office. Writing about Apple all the time, it was a little embarrassing not to use products efficiently. Don’t be like me, rename your Mac to find it easily on the local network or when you use Find My iPhone option in iCloud.
If you already know how to do it, spread the knowledge with your other Mac users. If you don’t know how to do it, that’s what I am here for. Stay with me through this guide and rename your Mac easily.
How to Change Name of Mac
Step #1. Open System Preferences by clicking the Apple Logo on the top-left side of your Mac’s status bar.
Step #2. Now click on Sharing.
Step #3. All you need to do now is to enter a name for your Mac in the text-field that reads Computer Name.
There’s no done or save option in this window. Just close it and you are done.
Ask your colleague or send yourself a file using AirDrop and you’ll notice your Mac name is changed.
After sharing this word with my colleagues, I was able to pull out their creativity. I saw some weird Mac names on the network. Whatever may be the reason for you to name your Mac, this guide will certainly come in handy.
