Dell XPS M1210 + Windows 10

My Dell XPS M1210 is still alive and it is will 8 years old soon. It is on its 3rd battery. Swapped in an SSD.

  • GPU: GeForce Go 7400
  • Camera: Integrated Logitech Camera
  • Storage: Upgraded to 120GB SSD

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
