To identify the user, a specific name is given when the operating system is installed. It can be assigned by default or entered by the user.

Changing the name is a rare need, but nevertheless it sometimes occurs. This is especially true when a mistake is made in registering a new account, or when multiple accounts (administrative or guest) are created.

Unfortunately, the developers have not added a quick name change option to the system settings. Despite this, it is possible to rename an account with a few clicks.

To change the user name:

  1. Press the Win + R key combination and in the window that appears, type the command “netplwiz”. This will open a window for setting up a user account. From the list provided, select the account you want to rename.

Click “Properties” and enter the new user name. 4. Then tap “Apply” → “OK”.
