    User folder name...


    I've re-installed Win10 Home via the media creation tool. Everything is where it should be and my account is working just fine. But... For some reason my personal folder under C:/Users is named after the first five letters of my Email instead of my real first name, which is the name on my user account. It's bugging the hell out of me. My account's user name is what it should be everywhere else.

    What gives? Any way to return this to normal?

    Hello @Razorhoof78, welcome to tenforums.com! :)

    Only way around it is to install with a Local Account and a generic User name first, then switch to an MS Account later.
    That will leave the User folder with a generic name.
