comment How can I rename a network in Windows 8?
@davor: That's a valid question, but unfortunately it's a question that I can't answer. For me, the annoyance of the "Network 2" name was worth the risk of hacking around the registry. That said, I've been happily using this solution for over a year, and I haven't had any issues at all. So, at least in my experience, it seems pretty safe.

comment How to prevent the Win8 explorer navigation panel from automatically expanding? (I have disabled auto expansion in folder options)
Did you ever figure out a solution for this? I have the same issue in both Windows 8 and 8.1. So annoying.

As noted in my question, that's a Windows 7 solution and does not work in Windows 8. The "Set Network Properties" and "Merge or Delete Network Locations" options seem to have been removed.
