Computer Name in Taskbar.

My boss wanted to put a name on the desktop (floating) or taskbar so that he knows which machine is he working on (Virtual Machine, Host Machine or Remote Desktop). Here’s what I found which is simply brilliant;

  1. Right-Click your Taskbar
  2. Click Toolbars –> New Toobar…
  3. Right Click in the empty space, Click New -> Folder, and give your New Folder a Name. Example: ZY-I5-PC
  4. Click Select Folder
