    Changing the User folder name


    Hey again.
    I tried to change the name of my profile user folder, using this guide Change Name of User Profile Folder in Windows 10

    But when I take a look in the regedit, I can only find "currentversion", which leads to "AutoRotation" in the Windows folder, where the profile SIDs should be. Any ideas?

    I use Windows 10 pro on it (Version 1903).

    Thanks

    Hello Christoffer,

    I'm not sure what you mean. Could you post some screenshots with more details to help see what may be happening?

    Where is says "currentvision" or "AutoRotation" I should have a list of profiles instead, but I don't, and don't know why.

    Ah ok. It looks like you expanded the Windows key instead of Windows NT key by mistake.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\<SID>
