  1. Changing my PC username


    Hey!


    I recently logged into my microsoft account when I reset my PC, and I used my phone number, but now when I go to C:\Users it says that my username is 44772. When I right click however there isn't a rename option. Does anyone here know how I can rename my username so it's my name rather than the first 5 digits of my phone number?


    Thanks :

    :)
