This question comes up a lot, so it’s worth documenting:
Question: How do I rename a VPN connection in Windows 7? There’s no option to rename it in the Network and Sharing Center or on the taskbar.
It’s true that there’s no way to rename a VPN connection on the Network and Sharing center main screen:
…and if you click the icon in the System Tray and then try to right-click the VPN connection, there’s no rename option under properties either:
But the rename VPN option is nearby, tucked away under “Changer Adapter Settings” on the Network and Sharing Center:
Here you will see the familiar wired and wireless NICs and VPN connections listed, since there are different types of VPN services you can get online using a torguard coupon to get the best deals for this. Just right-click the VPN connection here and then click Rename.
It’s just one of those easily overlooked or forgotten things.
