Instructions: enable the updated “Rename your computer” and “Change date and time” windows in Windows 11 Build 25201+

Microsoft has been wanting to ditch the classic Control Panel in Windows for years in favor of the Settings app, but it has yet to achieve the desired result. And if in the days of Windows 8 this was due to a small number of settings in the “Parameters”, then in Windows 10 the problems were more likely with the intuitiveness of the interface and the logic of building the application itself.

That is why, for the release of Windows 11, the company redesigned the Settings app again, changing the interface, application logic, and so on. And it really got better, although some problems still remain.

Many of the links in the Settings app open outdated dialog boxes from the days of Windonws 7, Vista, XP, or even earlier versions of the OS. Of course, they should also be updated, but this is unlikely to happen in the coming years. But there are other dialog boxes that appeared in the system during the days of Windows 8 and 10, and they need to be put in order.

The process, of course, is underway, but Microsoft is in no hurry. In Windows 11 Insider Build 25201, available on the Dev channel, enthusiasts found updated dialog boxes “Rename the computer” and “Change date and time”, made in the style of Fluent Design. At the moment, changes are disabled by default, you can enable them manually using the ViVeTool utility.


  1. Download the ViVeTool utility by this link. This is a new version of ViveTool 0.3.1, the details of which we described in our material.
  2. Unpack the downloaded archive to any place on your computer (for example, you can create a ViVeTool folder in the root of the C: drive and place the files there).
  3. Open a command prompt as an administrator (for example, by typing CMD in the search and selecting the appropriate item).
  4. In the command line, navigate to the folder with ViVeTool using the command cd /d , then press Enter. For example: cd /d "C:\ViVeTool"
  5. Type the following commands and press Enter:
    • “Rename this PC”:
      • vivetool /enable /id:38228963 /store:both
      • vivetool /enable /id:36390579 /store:both
    • “Change date and time”:
      • vivetool /enable /id:39811196 /store:both
  6. Make sure that the command line shows the message “Successfully set feature configuration”
  7. Restart your computer to apply the changes.

If you want to disable the changes, then use the following commands:

  • “Rename this PC”:
    • vivetool /disable /id:38228963 /store:both
    • vivetool /disable /id:36390579 /store:both
  • “Change date and time”:
    • vivetool /disable /id:39811196 /store:both
