That is to rename your network adapter, not the network you are connected to.
This feature has been removed from the operating system. You have to rely on 3rd party software to change or delete network names.
Why would they remove that? 0.o M$, y u no make sense?!
You know a 3rd party software that do it?
ops, my bad
- Go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ NetworkList \ Profiles
- Change "ProfileName" string value to the desired network name.
