Although it's possible to change the actual user name shown on the login screen and start-up screens it is not possible to change the folder names in the user area.

What is recommended is to create a new user and transfer the user files from the old account to the new and then delete the old account

Change default location for "Change Icon..." button?
In Windows 7, all the good icons are in %SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll, but we're still taken to the old SHELL32.dll when it comes time to change an icon. Is there a registry key or something that we can change to remedy this?
