    You can change the name of Microsoft in the user folder?


    Hello,
    you can change the name of Microsoft in the user folder? (That would be the first 5 characters Microsoft account)
    I wish I could do this without losing anything of what I have currently installed.
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Can you change the name of your user folder in %userprofile%?
    Perhaps if you are quite technically proficient, with due attention to backups, as you could seriously mess things up if you get it wrong.
    One person reported success with this. You have to consider: is it worth the effort and the risk.
