How to change the name of your Windows Phone

If you have more than one Windows Phone at your disposal and need to keep track of them, you’ll need to know the names of the devices. Better yet, you can assign a name that makes it a lot easier for to track such as Rita’s Personal Phone or Rita’s Work Phone. Another reason you might want to change your Windows Phone name is when you want your Bluetooth name to reflect your name. Whatever the reason, you can change the name of your phone by connecting it to your PC.

To find your Windows Phone name, go to the Settings screen, scroll down and tap on about. You will see your Windows Phone name along with the Model and Software version. To change the name of the device:

  1. Connect your Windows Phone to your PC via a USB cable.
  2. Open File Explorer. On the left navigation pane, you will see your Windows Phone link show up. Alternatively, click This PC and you’ll see the Windows Phone icon show up on the Devices and drives section.
  3. Right-click the Windows Phone icon and select Rename.
  4. Add a name of your choice.
