How to change the Certificate's friendly name using PowerShell?

PowerShellMicrosoft TechnologiesSoftware & Coding

Suppose we know the Thumbprint of the certificate then we can use the below command to update or change the certificate's friendly name.

Example

$cert = Get-ChildItem `
   -Path Cert:\LocalMachine\My\43E6035D120EBE9ECE8100E8F38B85A9F1C1140F
$cert.FriendlyName = "mysitecert"

The above command will update the certificate-friendly name to "mysitecert". If you don't know the thumbprint or how to retrieve it, you can use different properties like Subject name, friendly name, etc.

Example

$cert = Get-ChildItem -path `
   Cert:\LocalMachine\My\`
   |  where{$_.Subject -eq "CN=mysite.local"}
$cert.FriendlyName = "mysitecert"
