  1. User Account Name Change


    I just got this computer last week, and the last letter of my name is missing. I dont have an option to change it in the Control Panel, nor can I rename the folder through my drive.

    Is there another option?

    :)

    Query about changing the User Accounts name

    Hi Jerry,

    Perform the steps mentioned below to change the user account name.

    • Sign in to the Your info page on the Microsoft account website.

    • Under your name, select Edit name.
      If there’s no name listed yet, select Add name.
    • Edit or add the name you want, then choose Save.
      Your Microsoft account name will start to appear or change everywhere you use it.

    Please revert if you still cannot change the user account name.

    Thank you.
