    How to boot to a command prompt in Win10 ?


    Tapping F8 or spacebar doesn't do anything ?

    I want to boot to command prompt only. I need to rename my user folder, in an attempt to get it named correctly, after the clean upgrade decided to drop the last character, which now gives me a girls name.. lol

    Doing it within Windows gives me an Access Denied.. Doing it as a local account, gives me an Access Denied.

    Was going to give it a shot outside the OS. and at the recovery prompt, using just the REN command.

    Then booting back in, (ignoring the plethora of errors) mess around a little in the registry, HOPEFULLY have my Microsoft account sync itself back to the correct path, then go for another clean install.
