Type in the new name and hit Enter.
Specifying the telephony location for a telephone line
By default all telephone lines share the same telephony location selected

for outgoing local or long-distance calls. Such telephony locations
must first be created in the system. To do this, click on the Edit

Windows Help system. After all locations
have been defined you can select the one required for each telephone
line from the Location
list under the same tab.
