    Well, in your case, you should have at least 5. Public, Default, Default.migrated (this is common, it's a result of upgrading), and Administrator. are 4 standard ones, then it looks to me like you have 1 local account (Panda) and possibly 1 Microsoft account (aaron, Microsoft account profiles typically start with the first 5 letters of the email address). The aaron.DESKTOP-80I64MU is likely the result of a clean install you may have done, and after trying to log in with a Microsoft account, it discovered there was already one there, so it created a second account using the random machine name assigned when you did the install.

    If you have not done a clean install, and you've not used a local account or not used a Microsoft account, then there would indeed be something strange going on.
