If your Microsoft Windows 8 computer has been added to a domain and you want to login to a local account, you may need to know the computer name for the PC. Luckily, you can find the computer name rather easily.
- From the login screen, select to sign in as “Other user“.
- Select the “How do I sign in to another domain?” link.
- The local computer name is shown. In this case, the local computer name is “THECOMPUTER“.
This is kind of a strange place to hide such information, since the link refers to instructions for signing into a domain. That’s where Microsoft has chosen to put it though.
