    Wireless Keyboard Renaming Issues


    I recently purchased a second hand wireless keyboard, which already has an assigned name corresponding to that of the previous owner. I can not find a way to rename the device on the windows 8 settings - would anyone be able to advise me?

    I would rather avoid editing the registry if possible, just in case I rename it in one place, and it is indexed elsewhere.

    Thanks in advance!
