    Windows 10 on VMware Workstation with a 'fake' username


    Sometimes I wish to make and post/upload screenshots and / or a short video.

    With screenshots, I can remove my name using whatever screen capturing tool.

    This is more complicated though with videos. Maybe users with more advanced experience know how to blank the user name in videos, but for me it would be nice to be able to run Windows (again, within VMware Workstation) with some 'fake name', like UserX

    I still have an unused W10 x64 Pro retail license (upgrade from 8.1) that I might use to create a new VM for that purpose.

    I wonder though whether that will work?

    During setup, at one point in time I will get a "Make it yours" screen, requiring email and password.
    Using my email address and pw, it will automatically use my account profile then. Obviously.


    Then again, I don't know what comes next when I hit the 'Skip this step' option at the bottom.

    But maybe, what I am asking, isn't possible at all...

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    VMWare Workstation 12 is out now, which fully supports Windows 10. I suggest upgrading to 12.

    Windows 10 on VMware Workstation with a 'fake' username

    Configure VMware Workstation


    That must be one hefty machine, With the roles you want Server 2012 r2 that will be a minimum of 4 gigs and 7 and 8.1 are at least 1gig each.

    But that's not what you asked, I would search the web for a good tutorial on creating a Home lab with VMware 12 and Windows server 2012 R2
