Windows 10: How do I change log-in user name in Windows10?

    How do I change log-in user name in Windows10?


    I let a friend log into my Windows 10 laptop. Now I can't seem to find a way where I change user name so I can log in. I have searched forums ... one suggestion was to right click on the user name or power button .... didn't work for me.

    I have not created a user name recovery disk or something of that nature ... so that won't work for me either.

    I tried F8 to get into safe mode so that I can delete the user .. but can't seem to get into safe mode with F8.

    Any other ideas?
