Windows 7: Rename desktop username folder.

Rename desktop username folder.

Basically you know the default user folder on the desktop that's the same as your log in/account name? I want to know how to rename it without renaming the actual username, so it's purely aesthetic. My desktop in general uses greek characters for aesthetic reasons. I know you can change the name of the "Network" folder on the desktop using the registry so I'm wondering if one could do the same for the user folder on the desktop without changing the actual username and folder name on the C Drive.
