    Change name and add another simple users without microsoft account


    Hi.

    How i can change completely the name and the mail it has add it at windows 10?

    I want to add 2 users.
    One is going to be the admin with the mail it has(If i can do it without using any mail or account at all it would be fantastic)
    Two is going to be simple user NOT ADMIN so the admin choose what it can do the simple second user and has the full control of this second user.

    A lot of thanks for your time and your answers.

    :)

    Is there a Simple way to Change User Account/Name?

    A profile folder for new users in C:\Users will only be created when the user signs in first time.

    An example:

    I've just created a new local user account JohnDoe, as can be seen in Settings > Accounts > Family & other people. However, as this user has never signed in, the user profile and profile folder have not been created yet, C:\Users only showing default Public profile and my own profile:

    The user account has been created and is shown in users lists like in Start, but its profile folder is not created yet. To create the profile folder for JohnDoe, he needs to sign in once. Click Start > user account picture > JohnDoe to switch user:

    JohnDoe can now sign in:

    This will take a minute or two because it's first now that Windows creates the user profile for him, creates profile folder C:\Users\JohnDoe and prepares default files and folders to be copied to his new profile folder:

    Short: no panic, just sign in once with the new account you made for your wife. The profile will be created.

    Query about changing the User Accounts name

    Hi Jerry,

    Perform the steps mentioned below to change the user account name.

    • Sign in to the Your info page on the Microsoft account website.

    • Under your name, select Edit name.
      If there’s no name listed yet, select Add name.
    • Edit or add the name you want, then choose Save.
      Your Microsoft account name will start to appear or change everywhere you use it.

    Please revert if you still cannot change the user account name.

    Thank you.

    Change name and add another simple users without microsoft account

    Is there a Simple way to Change User Account/Name?

    I know there are many things that are suggested but I wonder if there is a simple way to do this.
    We just got our new Windows 10 Pro laptop yesterday and it was set up with an MS username and junk password. It then created a username in the USER directory and, all programs will want to use it. So, before I install Quicken, I want the data to go into the Proper User directory. I went to accounts and had Windows NOT use the MS sign in but added my wife's name and selected a password. Simple enough...BUT she is NOT in the user directory. Is there any way I can fix this? Someone suggested that I try to create a family member and say that there was no email account but this is starting to sound like a real mess!

    Could I just remove her and then add her back from the control panel? Would that then create her name in the USERS directory? I do not want to keep trying stuff and messing up this new system.
