    Changing name issue


    I am having problems changing my Windows 10 name, like the one you see when you start up you're computer saying Welcome " User ". I can't change it and I also tried using control panel and going on user accounts and also going on changing account type and then I get this message saying "You can't change your account type because you have the only administrator account on this PC. You must make another user an administrator before you can change your account." So does this mean I have to make another user on my computer or is their another way, please help.

    :)

    If you desire a name change please do the following:

    • Ask yourself if you really need a name change.
    • Make sure you have a good reason.
    • Know what you want your new name to be before you request a name change.
    • Send Urlyin a PM containing a decent explanation of your reason as well as your desired name.

    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.

    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.

    4. Enter a user name and hit next.

    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
