Sometimes my brain just doesn't want to work. I don't know why I was trying to select multiple items with the shift key, I know, it's the control key, I never make that mistake on my desktop. Oh well, I guess I just wanted to post something. Peppermint has been working so good for me I feel left out.  :D

Hi alynur,
It's your fault (the name thing) you could have changed that at install

Joke aside, here https://www.howtogeek.com/197934/how-to-change-your-hostname-computer-name-on-ubuntu-linux/

Pretty easy!
Good luck
