MacOS: How to change the internal Hostname

hi there

I want to show you how to you change your internal hostname of your macbook or other MacOS devices.

To do that, you have to open terminal first and normally the hostname would be like Toms Macbook, Mikes Macbook or whatever name you've typed in on the first login.

You just have to type in
sudo scutil --set HostName foo.local

where foo.local can be replaced with your prefered hostname.

The system password is requested and it's done.

As you see now, it's not changed yet, what you have to do is close it, open a new terminal window and we have a new name. So i hope you have enjoyed it and name you book properly cya!
