Windows 7: User name set to "homo" -Damn computer guy

15 Dec 2009   #11

Windows 10 Pro x64 1909 - 18363.657 XP/Vista/Win7/Win8.1 in VM for testing

The issue that you have here is although you can change the display name for the user and computer, as you have, this does not change the name on the user files tree.

As this information is also written all over the registry changing this is not a simple task.

As suggested earlier your best solution is to crate a new admin user and log into the new user account, move any files you need from the "homo" account tree and delete the "homo" account (including files).

If you choose not to delete the files they will be stored in a folder an the desktop of the new admin user.
