  1. User name


    I have just re-built my laptop due to the fact I could not run some programs on the new insider build.

    After the re-build I now have 2004.20180.100, and all is running ok.

    The issue I have is my user name is Dennis Gowen, however I open lets say Good sync, and search for this folder to sync my music the only name I can select is "denni\music". All sync's ok, it is just confusing, is the a way to get the name as it appears in Explorer, Thanks

    :)
