  1. I can't change my name anymore, help please


    I got a Windows 10 laptop about a year ago, and looking at the username I chose at the time I totally regret it now.

    When I go to Control Panel there is NO option at all to change it. Is this one of the things that Microsoft removed without any thought?


    Also I noticed that Microsoft likes to get rid of things that could prove useful for people every time a new operating system comes out.

    :)

    • Make sure you have a good reason.
    • Know what you want your new name to be before you request a name change.
