  1. Removing previous owner's name from Windows Log In Screen


    I am unable to remove the company name from the Windows 10 log in screen. I have followed all steps to change registered owner's name using regedit but it continues to show the original owner's name. What was weird was that I had to actually create a registered user and registered owner string because it did not exist in the regedit. But even with that, still shows incorrect owner info when I log in.

    :)

    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.
