    User Account with username "user"


    I need to create user with username "user" but Windows 10 won't let me.

    I delete user folder in users folder and open:
    Settings->Accounts->Family & other users->Add someone else to this PC->(click on link)The person I want to add doesn't habe an email address->(click on link)->Add a user without a Microsoft account
    And then I enter user name "user" and password and it saves it without problem. But I can't login like that user, I can't even see that user anywhere. Then I repeat all above procedure but then I got an error that I must type in other user name then "user".

    :)

    My only user account (an admin account) does not have permissions to do anything - help!

    I have this same issue and I note that in the user accounts, my username is not shown.. .it simply shows up as "c:\users\user". Searching for my account name to change ownership of folders etc. does not find my username. However, if I enter 'user', when
    I check the name it shows up as '<computername>\user'. Accepting that value, then changes the 'owner' to <myemail address> per my Microsoft account. Seems to me that this may be part of the problem. An identity crisis ?
