    Change username in Win 10


    (How) Can I change that annoying 5-letter username? The only solution I found so far is to set up the computer with a local, not a Microsoft account, but it's too late for that. And starting from scratch would be a massive pain in the ass.

    So is there any other way?

    Just to verify, do you mean for the user account name or the user profile folder name?

    It sounds like you are wanting to change the user profile folder name like below.
