Did you mean that you wanted to change your username here at SF to evg220497?

In that case, you could use the tutorial below to change the name of the user profile folder.

User Profile Folder - Change User Account Folder Name

However, it would be a lot easier to just create a new account with the name you want instead, copy what you want from the old account to the new account, and while logged in to the new account delete the old account.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

After creating the new account, you would just manually copy and paste any Start Menu shortcuts and files that you wanted from your C:\Users\evg220497 user folders (ex: My Music) to the same corresponding folders for the new account.
