    Can you change your username on the signed in Win 10 Preview


    The Hotmail account I use is very old. I don't wish to see that username associated with my new Win 10 yet, the system uses the name of my Hotmail/Live account. How can I still remain logged in and use a different name on my new Win 10 install?

    I plan to upgrade this to RTM so that username must go.
    Thanks

    :)

  2. Windows 10 domain computer requires username to unlock. Can this be changed?

    Ever since several Win 10 preview builds ago, it requires both username and password in order to unlock a system instead of just a password. Can this be changed?
