Did you do the following?

  1. Open the Control Panel by clicking the "Start" menu and then selecting "Control Panel" in the right column.
  2. Search for User Accounts by typing "user accounts" into the search bar at the upper- left corner of the control panel.
  3. Select the "Make Changes to Accounts" option under the heading "User Accounts."
  4. Select "Change Your Name" and type in the new user name for the account and then press "Change Name." The changes will take effect the next time you log in.

Hello Nonpasaran,

Unfortunately, you cannot change the name of the actual C:\Users\(user name) folder. Changing the name in User Accounts (Control Panel) will only change the name of the account displayed in the Start Menu, and both names will then be tied to that user account.

The only way around this is to create a new administrator account with a name different than any used on the other account. Next, copy the contents of the old account's C:\Users\(user name) folders into the corresponding new account's C:\Users\(user name) folders to keep your settings and shortcuts. After everything checks out, you can delete the old account from within the new account.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
