Windows 7: Change Owner

Change Owner

Hi. I have a window 7 computer that shows my husband as the owner when I sign into the computer. I would like to be the owner as the computer belongs to me. My husband has no objection as he has his own computer.

Can this easily be done? If yes, can someone let me know how to do this.

Help, as usual, is appreciated.

Thank you.

Adding your account to the administrator groups should do it:

User Accounts - Add or Remove from Groups[2]=User%20Accounts

Edit: Never mind. See Brink's post instead.
