  1. How to find old computer name in windows 10?


    Hi Guys,


    I recently updated my Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro and changed the computer name.


    now i am in need of the old computer name for a software license that was tied to it.


    Any registry settings i should be looking at?


    all the help is much appreciated.


    Thank You.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
