What's my PC's name?

ID-100100046If you've ever called the Help Desk needing help on an SCLS-supported PC then you've been asked for the PC's name.  This can usually found on a white sticker with black letters that is placed on the PC.  If you can't find the sticker or the PC is in a place that makes it hard to see it then I have an easy solution for you.  Unfortunately, though these steps will only work on staff PCs.  The steps are as follows:

  1. Click the Start button
  2. Click on Run...
  3. Type in cmd
  4. Type in hostname
  5. Hit Enter
  6. Your PC's name will be displayed

Now wasn't that simple!  Of course if your PC won't turn on then you're going to need to find the sticker.
