Windows 7: Renaming account doesn't really rename it?

Renaming account doesn't really rename it?

So when you rename your Windows 7 account, it doesn't change the path name.

Like for an example:

C:\Users\OldName is still C:\Users\OldName

How can I make it change the path name for everything with out having to create a new account?

Hello Zevoxa,

Creating a new account is the best method to do so, but the tutorial below can help show you how to properly rename your user profile folder's name.
