To manually change the devices "Friendly Name" you must edit the registry.

This will not be necessary once there is a dialog to perform this step
  • Open Registry Editor
    • Press WIN+R
    • Type regedit
    • Press Enter
  • Navigate to HLKM\SOFTWARE\DroidExplorer\KnownDevices
    • If this does not exist, connect your device and try again
  • Find your Devices Serial Number Value
    • It will have a GUID string for its Data
  • Create a new Value (String Value) with the GUID as the Name
    • If this Value already exists, skip to the next step
  • Set the Data to the name of your device
  • Reconnect your device
