Start->type: change computer name
select: Rename this computer

You can also reach this option(s) in other ways.

Changing a username does not change the homedirectory.

Backup the data from your user account directory.

Create a new account, instead of changing the account name, and delete the old account.

Might be more smart things to do out there, but this one should work.

Best regards,
