    Changing Windows 10 Log-On name


    I have been trying to change my name for my windows log on for the longest time and everytime I try I come up short. I have tried using control panel to do it and would try on Microsoft if I could navigate it properly. Any other ways, or a location to find where I can change my Log on name?

    :)

  2. How do I change the network adapter name? (Windows 10)

    Press Windows Key + R, type secpol.msc and press Enter to run it. In Local Security Policy window, go to the Network List Manager Policies in the left pane. Now in the right pane double click on the network name that you want to change. In the Properties windows under the Name section make sure that Name is selected. Now in the input field enter the name that you wish to use for your connection. Click Apply then OK to save the changes. And you might have to log in again or to restart your computer before the changes are applied.
