    Windows 10 made two user folders


    After fresh installation of windows 10, windows decide to make one more username folder.

    My default user folder is Jugo, and the new one is Jugo.DESKTOP-RUHDOGV, dont know why windows made it. I know that is not made because of MS account, because I didnt sign in. I would like to have only one user folder, and not two, how can I achieve this? I know that I can make new account and delete the old one, but is there a way to merge this two together. I also noticed that Jugo.DESKTOP-RUHDOGV folder has more data in it, but i dont know why, and why did that happen. Here is a screenshot

    Look like Windows thew a hissy fit when loading your profile and decided to helpfully create a new one.

    To get back to normal (Works with Windows 7)

    1. Add a new local user with admin rights, then log in as this account.
    2. Move both the "Jugo" and "Jugo.DESKTOP-RUHDOGV" folders to somewhere other than C:\Users
    3. Run regedit, navigate to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
    4. Locate and remove the keys associated with the Jugo account (ProfileImagePath value will begins with C:\Users\Jugo)
    5. Reboot and log in as Jugo, a new profile should be created in C:\Users\Jugo
    6. Move (or copy if feeling cautious) all of your data back to C:\Users\Jugo - Do NOT copy / replace
      • Ntuser.dat
      • Ntuser.dat.log
      • Ntuser.ini

    7. When all is up and running delete account created at step 1


    Be very careful in the registry otherwise a complete re-format will be required. only remove the keys for your account.

    will try that, actually i found out there is no Jugo associated in registry only Jugo.DESKTOP-RUHDOGV" wich is really wierd.



    what if I copy stuff from Jugo.DESKTOP-RUHDOGV folder to Jugo folder, and change ProfileImagePath from Jugo.DESKTOP-RUHDOGV to Jugo, will that work? or do I need to make new admin account

    Safest to create new account to perform the moves otherwise files will be in use thus can't be moved.

    You should only have 2 users: jugo and public on a fresh install. Something is wrong and caused Windows Installation to create extra users. I would spend a little time to re-install Windows.

    Or even simpler open an elevated command prompt then type
    • net user UserName Password /add
    • net localgroup Administrators UserName /add

    Where UserName and Password are your own choice
