Adding this little chunk of code to your login script will change the “My Computer” name from “My Computer” to whatever the NetBIOS name of the (Windows) workstation is. Handy if you use a DNS-based remote access solution in the enterprise. Most users, without fail, can’t tell you the name of their workstation.
- Code: Select all
Const MY_COMPUTER = &H11&
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
objComputerName = objNetwork.ComputerName
Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace(MY_COMPUTER)
Set objFolderItem = objFolder.Self
objFolderItem.Name = objComputerName
I find it helpful.
