  1. Change of user name


    Hello,


    I use Office 365 and Windows 10 pro.


    My problem is as follows:

    1) When I install Windows onto my PC, somewhere along the process you are asked to fill in your user name. I do that using my own name, like "first name" space "last name". Later that name is visible on C:/Users/


    2) However if I later have to install Windows (fresh reinstall), the setup program doesn't ask that any more and assigns a user name of its own - always 5 digits as a combination of first and last name. That gives weird user names and I don't like that at all.


    Is there a way to change the user name created by Windows, for example in the registry??


    Thanks for advice and regards,

    Danker

    :)
