Why do I see 2 of my computers in 'My Computers' as 2 ID's in a list under my account name?

I have 4 computers on my wifi and all are using TeamViewer but when I look at the 'My Computers' list, I see two as their assigned operating system name and the other two are listed in a pop-up list using their ID's under an item in the 'My Computers' list.

This forces me to remember ID numbers to connect to either of those two computers.

How do I fix this?

Re: Why do I see 2 of my computers in 'My Computers' as 2 ID's in a list under my account name?

Darn, I hate it when I figure things out after I post a question about something in a forum.....

I did not post until I read all I could find on the web without success.

The answer hit me after my forum post made me rethink things...

Anyway, for those that follow, I realized that the computers that were showing up as their operating system names were the ones I had assigned to my account in 'Extra/Options/General'.

So solution was to assign all the computers to my account in the TeamViewer options of each computer...
