    Changing device names and deleting devices

    Yeah, you can't delete old/retired machines from the "my grid" page. The only option you have really is to wait a few days then change how it sorts the list:

    Oh, and Mike is correct, by changing the windows "computer name" it'll change on the "my grid" page.

    Changing device names and deleting devices

    You can't delete "retired" machines....there is some kind of "paper" trail they keep and the "old" devices are kept in archive.

    I think???you can change machine names by doing so in windows "computer name" and then it might change[can't remember for sure] if it doesn't do so...detach and do a remove/re install and it should change.
