Thank you for your reply.
It's quite possible that I renamed the original "Frank" to "Self" but at
this point I just don't recall.
Re: Changing "Frank" to another name
I have attempted to rename existing "Frank," but I haven't been successful
using the Help tips, the "Change Name" feature, and the "change account type"
Re: Control Panel view
I see only Admin in bold (the name I assigned it), listed as an
Administrator and it is PW protected. When I click on "Manager another
account" is see three Users: Admin, ASP.NET (standard user, password
protected--I have no idea how it got pw protected), and Guest (turned off).
"Self" has disappeared. I have identity crisis.
The only place I see "Frank" is in Windows Explorer, where it is nested
inside User on C:. I can't change its name there, either. Documents I've
created and saved show up in "Frank"\Documents.
