Yes, it is possible.
Use sysprep by windows and it would be the line below:

<settings pass="specialize">
      <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS">
         <ComputerName>@@{name}@@</ComputerName>
         <RegisteredOrganization>Nutanix</RegisteredOrganization>
         <RegisteredOwner>Acropolis</RegisteredOwner>
         <TimeZone>UTC</TimeZone>
      </component>
