System Change System Product Name in Windows 11

  • Staff

The system product name is the model name of your Windows 11 device.

An OEM will usually specify the system product name (ex: "Surface Pro X"), and usually cannot be changed.

If you built the PC yourself, then there usually isn't a system product name specified allowing you to change the default System Product Name displayed to a custom name you want instead.

This tutorial will show you how to change the system product name in Windows 11.


You must be signed in as an administrator to change the system product name.


EXAMPLE: System Product Name

Here's How:

1 Open Registry Editor (regedit.exe).

2 Navigate to the key below in the left pane of Registry Editor. (see screenshot below)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SystemInformation

3 In the right pane of the SystemInformation key, double click/tap on the SystemProductName string value (REG_SZ) to modify it. (see screenshot above)

4 Type a system product name you want, and click/tap on OK. (see screenshot below)

5 You can now close Registry Editor if you like.


That's it,

Shawn, could you please tell how you managed to install Windows 11 Pro for Workstation? I believed that Workstation version is a special version for powerful multi-processor PCs, while Pro is a version intended for common PCs in businesses, either standalone or in network, but with typical single-CPU configuration like most of home PCs. Your specification shows that you have a single CPU. The same is here, Windows 11 Pro is activated as digital licence of previous Windows 10 Pro, which has been initially activated using Windows 8 Pro key.

Hello Slavic, :)

You can install Windows 11 Pro for Workstations on any computer with the same installation media as Pro or Home. You will just need a Pro for Workstations key to activate though since a Pro or Home key will not activate it.
