    Win 10 uses the first 5 characters of your email address as the user folder name, unfortunately there's no reliable way to change it without making a new account.

    Yep. I learned that one the hard way. Now I create a local account first which creates the folder with the same username under Users. Then convert it to a Microsoft login.
