    Owner Name, File Details


    I recently changed my User name from my email to my actual name so that my file locations were easier to interact with, that went well. However, I now notice that when I go to Properties and then Details of any file that the Owner name is Desktop\MyEmail so I then changed the Registered Owner name on my PC to my name as well yet it still shows Desktop\MyEmail under file details. My Windows version now says my name as the Owner, it just hasn't changed when I check under file details. Any tips or help are appreciated, I'm just OCD when it comes to things like this.

    Old Owner Name

    I bought a used Axim. I changed the Device ID in Settings -> System ->

    About. I changed the owner name in Settings -> Personal -> Owner Info.

    But when I use Send To on a Windows 7 "desktop", the option for my

    Axim lists the old owner's name. Not a major problem, but definitely

    annoying. I couldn't find that name in the registry (on the Axim).

    Can anyone suggest another place to look?

    Thanks.

  3. Changing name of a file owner in file explorer

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    For further clarity on the issue, please respond to the questions below.



    1. When you say, “Changing name of a file owner in file explorer” are you referring to change the USER account folder name?
    2. Are you using a Microsoft account or a local account on the PC?
    3. Are you aware of any changes made to the PC?
    4. What exactly do you mean by, “I would like to change the name that it puts in the iCloud Drive folder”?


    Please get back to us with the detailed information to assist you further with the issue.

    Owner Name, File Details

    Where did user name Owner come from?

    Thank you Ztruker, will do it right now

    - - - Updated - - -

    Movement of contents of C:/Users/Owner into C:/Users/KCav could not be completed because:
    1. Error 0x 80070057kept AppData from being moved
    2. NTUSER.DAT could not be moved because the file is open in System

    Did not need to create a new user account named KCav. That was the name given to the original account.
    Don't know where Owner came from.
