  1. Just set up new local account and it doesn't have a folder in C:\Users


    I've been having some problems with Windows, so I just did a clean reinstall. It did the thing with making my user profile name the beginning of my email address. I want it to be my first name instead, and after searching I found people saying that there's no way to actually change the account name with your Microsoft account, you have to log in with a local account instead. So I set up a local account, and I am able to log in with it, but when I look at the C:\Users folder it doesn't list it there, it only lists that name that's the beginning of my email address and then another folder called "Public." I've tried logging out and back in but it's still not there.

    :)
