• My computer name was j-pc and something changed it to MINWIN\j-pc, when I go to the profile it shows j-pc but in the network tree it show MINWINPC. What changed this and how do I change it back?

  • Can you check the domain or workgroup name of your computer? Have you connected to a domain since the last time you checked the computer's name?

  • I have a home network with a desktop and laptop, a router and wireless printer. The desktop is hooked up to the the printer by the usb port and the laptop is wireless. The laptop doesn't alway's see the printer but it does see the router. I don't know where that new name came from or when.

    I have changed the laptop to jims instead of j-pc. I also went into the System properties and changed it from MINWINPC to jims.

    Minwin isn't showing up now.

    My Network show workgroup

    I never had a problem connecting to a domain.
