    Setup Windows with other username


    By default Windows is setup with the username used as home folder name. as my email address is pretty long it adds to the whole path of everything in it. There is a maximum length of path names. So I tend to use a single character logon name. After that I connect to tha cloud service OneDrive with my Hotmail account and sync everything from and to it. Worked like a breeze. Nowadays Windows won't let you setup an installation without an online account. How do I manually set the user home folder name?

    :)

    Setup Windows with other username

    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.
