How to find your computer name in Windows Vista

  1. Launch Windows Explorer.
  2. In the left-hand pane, find the "Computer" node.
  3. Right-click it and choose "Properties".
  4. In the window that appears, left-click the "Computer Name" tab. You should now have a window that looks like the following.
  5. The text ringed in red is your computer name, up to but not including the first dot character. So from the example, this is "home-PC".
  6. This will be the text to enter in FileBrowser's "Computer Name" field.
