- From the Start menu right-click Computer, Properties, Advanced; or Control Panel, System; then to the right of “Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings” click Change Settings, where you see the old familiar Computer Name tab, click the Change … button and assign the same name to the workgroup as you have on the other computers you want to share with (XP-wise).
