    Change Computer Name in Windows 10, can't log in


    I changed my computer name using the settings option (first way listed) in the tutorial Change Computer Name in Windows 10 .

    Fine. But now I can no longer log in. My ordinary login works on another computer just fine, so it's to do with the login being associated with this computer's name. What to do?

    Thanks.
    Bob
