    User name shortened - error ?

    In C Drive under users my user name shows as "tomfe" instead of Tom or TomFerguson. Not a serious issue but one I want to correct as is just is not correct. Can't seem to find a way to change it.

    Any suggestions welcome.

    Is that the name you were given by a Microsoft account?

    To get the folder name you want under Users, you have to start by creating a local account with that user name (either Tom or TomFerguson). Then convert the local account to a Microsoft account and the folder name will stay the same.

    I get johnh if I don't create a local account named John first.
