    My name is not listed among Users!


    I've noticed that C/Users does not show my name. It only shows Jim and Public. Hovering over all documents indicates the target as C: Users/Jim.
    Jim is my husband, but he does not even have a logon on this computer.
    How could this have happened and should I do anything about it? All data files were transferred by Best Buy from a failed Dell Windows 10 computer.

    Current active users that are friends

    The other reason I suggested this is that users can add characters to their username that are not alphanumeric (e.g. user*). This confuses things somewhat when looking at the list.
