Changing the case of windows computer name

If you’ve ever had the need to change the case of the windows computer name assigned during installation, you’ll know it can be a right pain.

I discovered two registry settings which achieve the desired result.


HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\TCPIP\Parameters\NV Hostname

Change these and then reboot, the machine will have new upper case name you’ve chosen.

I wouldn’t recommend actually changing the name here and I’ve never done it, but certainly for case changing it’s perfect.
