Changing acount name
I recently upgraded to a 2nd hand vista machine, and I can't get rid of the
original username on here.
I've gone to account settings, user profiles and changed everything I can
find (the name of the computer, the account name etc) but can not get the
name to change ie. the login is Jo, the user account name is Jo, the computer
is called Jo's computer, even C:/ drive is called Jo but the main folder
(Computer/C:/Users/Benny). There is no way to just click on this folder and
rename it, although the secondary login can be renamed by doing this.
Has anyone else had this problem? Where does one go to get their own name on
the Users folder?

Re: Changing acount name
Hello,

yes, the user name folder is not to rename. So, I'd make a temporary folder
outside the user's folder, copy everything what is needed there and delete
the user, create a new user, copying the personal files into the newly
created user's folder. I don't think there's another solution.

Greetings,
P. Di Stolfo
