  1. User in new computer is misspelled


    Hello Microsoft ,

    I recently bought a new computer with windows 10, I opened a user by syncing it with my microsoft account, as a result my user name was misspelled for no apparent reason.

    I proceeded to try various solutions such as changing the directory name, deleting using an administrator account and creating a local user. All of which produced very bad side effects.



    Anything I can do? will formatting Computer do the trick?

    Misspelled user folder across devices

    I'm having the same issue. I recently built a new computer and installed windows 10. When I added my wife's Microsoft Account to it, it left off the last letter of her name on the user folder. You say that whenever a new install is performed, it pulls the
    name from the default account setting somewhere to name the user folder. How can I change that default? If I can't, what are the steps to change the folder name in my current setting?

    I know this isn't really a problem but I get annoyed everytime I see that folder misspelled and I makes me kinda batty.
     
  3. Misspelled admin/user name on computer

    Good morning. I hope someone can help with this.

    I need to fix my misspelled name on my administrator/user name on my computer. I have Windows 10 Pro; I do not have the option to 'rename' when i right click. Is there a way just to edit the user/admin name?

    Thanks for posting on Microsoft Community. We will assist you in resolving the issue.



    From the above description, I understand you want to correct a misspelled user account name on Windows 10 PC.



    Before assisting further, are you editing Microsoft user account name or Local user account name?



    You will not be able to edit/rename Microsoft user account name on the computer. If you are using a Local user account, I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if the issue is resolved.

      Change the account user name.

      OK.
    • Close the window, lock the PC (press Windows logo + L keys on the keyboard) and check if the changes are effective.


    The above changes made will reflect only on the Login/lock screen. To change the name of the user folder in
    C: drive, follow the steps below:



    • Press Windows logo + E keys on the keyboard to open
      File Explorer
      .
