How to Change Operating System Name on Boot Menu | Microsoft Windows 10 Tutorial

Hello friends, and welcome again to our channel,
The Teacher. In this Windows 10 Tutorial Video, you will learn to change the operating system
name in the Windows Boot Manager. If you have more than one operating system installed on
your PC, then you will see a Boot Menu with the name of each operating system installed
on your PC. So in this video, you will learn that how you can change the operating system
name in the boot menu list. Open the Elevated Command Prompt by right-clicking
on the Start button and then click Command Prompt Admin. First, type BCDEDIT and hit
the enter key. You will see different Windows Boot Loader
entries for each operating system or any special boot configuration. Like, here we have one
identifier for the Windows 10 and the second identifier to load Windows 10 into Safe Mode.
So you must select the correct identifier that you want to modify in the next step.
Now, type the following command: BCDEDIT /set {identifier} that you want to
modify Description and then the new description within the Quotes that you want to apply.
Close the Command Prompt and the next time upon boot up, you will see the new name in
the list. I hope you will find this video informative.
