    How to chagne User to a new name 1803


    Hi,

    I have just got a new PC and it was set up with the initial name User with many programs setup.

    Now I want to change that name to another. How do i do this please?

    There does not seem to be a place in 1803 that allows this.

    I set up another account with the name i want to use but saw that most of the programs were not there that were setup in in User.

    Thanks

    oz

    :)

  2. User Name

    Hi Bradford,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per the issue description you are willing to have your name instead of email address at login screen.
    If you are using Microsoft account for logging to the system then it will be hard to remove email address and show your name only. However, if you want then you may create new user profile as a local account with administrator permission. In this account
    you may keep the name you want.

    For creating new user profile you may refer to the steps provided below.


    • Press Windows key + R

    • Type control userpasswords2 and click OK

    • Click on add under users tab

    • Click the option, "Sign-in without a Microsoft account

    • Click on Local account

    • Choose a name for the account

    • Add password if you want to

    • Apply and click OK.

    For more information you may refer to the article mentioned below and see if it helps.

    Create a local user account in Windows 10

    If issue still persists post back with current status of your computer and result of proposed suggestion, we will be happy to assist you.



    Regards,

    How to change the name of the user

    You cant reply to the automated email, it is just notifying you that a thread has a response.

    going back to your original post.

    when you create a new user, windows creates folders under the c:\Users directory with the account name (ie Geoff) if you rename the user, although the new name is shown on login etc the directory names don't change.

    the easiest way to get rid of Geoff is to -

    • change the username to something else (or back to Geoff)
    • create a new user with your name
    • copy all your documents, photos, videos etc. from Geoff to your new user
    • delete the Geoff user account and remove folders etc.
    this can all be done in user accounts as suggested by Ruth
