Chrome Other Devices tab has incorrect device name

Hi there.
 
I have a couple of computers which I use (one for work, one for home) and one of them is showing up incorrectly. I recently changed my home computer name but it still shows up as the old name under 'Other devices'. Is there a way to update this?
 
Thanks.

I have the same problem. This is annoying as I have the same OS on the clients and as such are unable to tell them apart easily.

Yes I managed to fix it by:
 
1. Uninstalling Chrome
2. Deleting all files in \Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome
 
Good luck!
