  1. My Local User Account Name


    I want to set up a local user account named 'Roger". It is important that I use that name and no other.

    Unfortunately, I set it up once before and then deleted it for a reason that I won't go into.. So I tried to set it up again a few days later and it will not allow me to use that name. The message say's "Pick another name". How can I get by this?

    :)

    • Press Windows key + X key.
    • Click on Control Panel.
    • Under view, select large icons.

  4. My Local User Account Name

    User Account Folder Name

    Here's a workaround to rename the user account folder:

    • Unlink your Microsoft Account from your Windows 10 device which will result for your account to be converted as a Local account.
    • Create a new Local account, name it using your preferred account and folder name then set it as Administrator.
    • Sign in to your Windows 10 device using the newly created local admin account.
    • Link your Microsoft Account to the newly created local admin account.

    After doing the steps above, check if this resolves your concern. If so, migrate all your files from the old account to the new user account and delete the previous one.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
