  3. How to correct misspelled name on Windows 10?

    Hi,



    Thanks for posting on Microsoft Community. We will assist you in resolving the issue.



    From the above description, I understand you want to correct a misspelled user account name on Windows 10 PC.



    Before assisting further, are you editing Microsoft user account name or Local user account name?



    You will not be able to edit/rename Microsoft user account name on the computer. If you are using a Local user account, I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if the issue is resolved.



    • Press Windows logo + X keys on the keyboard and select
      Control panel from the context menu.
    • From the top right corner of the window, click on View by
      and select Large icons.
    • From the window, click on User accounts and select
      Manage another account
      .
    • From the window, select your user account (the one to edit/rename) and click on
      Change the account user name.
    • Type correct user name in the box and click on Apply and
      OK.
    • Close the window, lock the PC (press Windows logo + L keys on the keyboard) and check if the changes are effective.


    The above changes made will reflect only on the Login/lock screen. To change the name of the user folder in
    C: drive, follow the steps below:



    • Press Windows logo + E keys on the keyboard to open
      File Explorer
      .
    • Click on This PC from the left side panel of the window and open
      C:
      drive.
    • Open Users folder and select the user folder with a misspelled user name.
    • Right click on the misspelled user name and select Rename option from the context menu to rename the folder.
    • Close the window and check if the changes are effective.


    Write to us with the status of the issue on the same post for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.
