    My brother just gave me his laptop and I can not for the life of me figure out how to change the homegroup.

    It is D*money(stupid i know)
    so when i download stuff and it asks for my name
    it automatically has his Homegroup name come up(i can change it manually) but how do i change it in the computer itself instead of having to do so in EVERY application i download?

    Thanks so much guys :)

    I'm not sure what the homegroup has to do with what you're talking about...

    The homegroup is sort of a psuedo win7 networking scheme which is pretty much useless.

    Open netwok and share center, click on the little house icon next to the word home network and default.Go in the resultant box and make your change.

    Start > right click Computer > select Properties > new window opens up and near the bottom it says Computer name, domain and workgroup settings > click Change Settings.
