    How do I change my Users name in Windows 10, v 1903?


    Hello:

    I have images that I need to access, but cannot, because the name of my Users file in the images is different that the one Win decided I should have after a clean install of 1903.

    Any which way that would actually work would be greatly appreciated, as I am reinstalling tons of apps.

    Thank you!!!



    :)
