If you issue the command
wmic path win32_computersystem get
/format:list, you will get a lot of other information about the
system, which will include the system's name. You can restrict the
information displayed to just the computer name with the command
wmic path win32_computersystem get name.
C:\Users\nell>wmic path win32_computersystem get name Name ENDA C:\Users\nell>

hostname command with
Windows PowerShell, rather than the command prompt. You can open a
PowerShell window by typing
powershell in the "Ask me anything"
field, rather than
cmd, and then hit Enter with
"Windows PowerShell" selected.
