Each of my activations says something along the lines of "DESKTOP-E5EGFU7" with the last string of numbers and letters being as far as I can tell random, so that I have five activations with five different random strings of numbers and letters. I searched everywhere on my computer and can't find the same string of letters and numbers anywhere. How can I figure out which activation corresponds to which computer?

At first it looked like a serial number, but I checked my computer's specs and none of the numbers or letters seem to correspond to anything on the "manage activations" list.

It's the computers name in Windows. Click on the Start Menu > Settings > System > About > it will be listed as the device name.

I don't know how to reply so I'm typing my reply to wesleypeterson as my answer.

Thank you! I had already looked there, but it turns out I had changed the name of my computer after I registered StudioOne, which is why I had been unable to find it. I was able to find the name of the other computer using your method. Much appreciated!
