  1. change log in name on new computer


    How do I change the log in name on my new computer? We now have two computers but because I set each one up my name comes up when my husband goes to log in. I want to have his name on the log in page instead of mine.

    Thank you,

    :)

    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

  3. Changing the Log-on/Display name

    Hi Ian,

    To change your sign-in screen name on Windows 10, follow the steps below:

    • Use the Windows key + I keyboard shortcut to open the Settings app.
    • Click Accounts.
    • Select Your email and accounts.

    • Hit the Manage my Microsoft Account link to open the web browser and load your profile.

    • In the main page, click the Edit name link.

    • Change your name and last name, and click Save.

    • Restart your computer.

    Note: It is important to know that following these steps, you will also be changing the name on your outlook.com account and other Microsoft services, as well as the account name that is connected with your Microsoft account.

    In line with this, you may also create a new account name on Windows 10, follow these steps:


    • Type user on the search bar; then, click User Accounts.
    • Click on change your account name option; then, change the name and check if it helps.
