Accounts :: Rename User Folder?

Jul 21, 2015

I guess since i installed windows 10 using my microsoft account, my user folder got named after my microsoft mail, or some part of it anyway. So am wondering if it's possible to rename the user folder somehow?

Accounts :: SYSTEM Owns User Folder On Drive D

Dec 3, 2015

I recently installed Win10 on a C SSD and set a D hard drive for my data. I have assigned default save to be D. FYI, I do have a C:User[name]Documents, Pictures, etc. also.

However, I found that on my drive D, there is a D:[name]Documents, Pictures, etc. So I included the sub folders into the Library. However, the D:[user]Documents folder does exist but I cannot change the permissions at all (Read Only). It is owned by the System.

Don't I need to take ownership back to make use of it? But how? Or do I just leave it alone. Right now, all save documents are going to C:[user]Documents. Other D:[user] sub folders, i.e., Pictures and Videos, are writable.

Accounts :: Kids User Accounts And Family Settings

Aug 7, 2015

Ive upgraded from Win 8 to Win 10.

I had 2 adult local accounts and 2 kids local accounts. I also have the 1 Microsoft account.

I don't want to use the Microsoft account signin on my laptop I want to use my local.

Is there a way to assign the existing local kids accounts to family without having to create new ones ? The kids are worried that if I do this they will lose their existing apps/game settings on the local accounts.

Accounts :: Different User Accounts - Only One Email Address

Dec 26, 2015

I've got two computers running windows 7. Both have an administrator account and a standard user account. The computer I use for gaming has a third account for gaming (I have some older games that don't like the aero-peak feature so the gaming account uses a plain desktop, no features.)

All these accounts use the same email address.

All these accounts will also use just the one Microsoft account.

My question is, when I upgrade to windows 10, will I be able to create a similar set-up for the user accounts, ie 5 different accounts, but only one email address and one Microsoft account? I've read that windows wants an email address to create a new account, is it going to tell me "that email address/Microsoft account has already been used?"

I am planning to upgrade to windows 10 by doing a clean install and starting from scratch, so I'm not worried about whether or not the existing accounts will transfer over.

Accounts :: Move / Copy-paste User Account Data And Docs To New User Account Same Sys

Feb 10, 2016

I had hoped Windows 10 corrected the "rename user account" function but nope. I renamed a User Account due to conflict on the LAN [same name, same spelling] and sure enough, now I have two names for the account, one a slightly hidden original name, and permissions issues. To rid it, I will create an all new Administrator account, move everything over, and demolish the old. How to do? the docs/files are easy... the settings for apps etc are not as I recall

Accounts :: Two User Accounts With One Email?

Oct 25, 2015

I have 2 accounts, one admin...and one standard (as recommended by Microsoft) Can I link them both to the same Hotmail (outlook) email?

(Standard account used daily...admin account rarely used and there for security I currently have each linked to a different email account but since the admin account is rarely used I'm worried that the email account associated with it might get killed off because of lack of use. If you want to be super it easy to change the email that a user account is linked to?)

Accounts :: Can't Change User Name

Jul 30, 2015

After I installed Windows 10, I created a Microsoft online account to see what it was like. During the process, it changed the name on my local Windows 10 user account. I used Control Panel to go to Users, but there seemed to be no way to change the name back to the original. It's the only account on the computer. Surely changing the name is possible, but how? Will I have to create a new administrator account and delete the old one?

Duplicate User Accounts

Sep 10, 2015

While on Win 7 I read that it is more secure to create another User account alongside your Admin one, and use that for day-to-day work. Apparently it stops hackers from gaining control of your machine. However, this caused a problem as I have an 256gb SSD system disk and, I think, the duplication has used up too much space, causing problems with programmes like Dropbox.If I delete the 2nd User account will I reclaim some space? If a programme is mounted on both accounts does it take up twice as much space? And, finally, is the security issue still relevant with Win 10?All my data is stored on other hard drives, so that's not a problem.Only the programmes are duplicated.

Accounts :: Sign In - Want To Select A User Name

Nov 14, 2015

when I start Windows 10, I have to sign in (without giving a password) to the last User that was signed in. In other words I don't have any options as to what User can sign in. But, when I start Windows 10, I want to be presented with a screen where I can see all the Users on my system. Then I want to be able to select which User to sign in. At the moment I'm having to log off to see this screen showing User options. Can I use secpol.msc?

Accounts :: User Profile Cannot Be Loaded

Nov 7, 2015

When I try to login, I get the following error message:"The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in.User profile cannot be loaded."I am literally unable to use my HP Envy laptop, which is running Windows 10, because of this. I do not even know how to get into safe mode. Though I haven't found safe mode yet, I was able to access system diagnostics via Escape (while rebooting). I tried to do a system restore, but it said I had errors on my hard drive and made me check and fix those errors.Next I tried Recovery Manager. But this just gives me a blue screen. Nothing comes up.

Accounts :: Can't Create Local User

Feb 10, 2016

I simply wanted to remove a long dead hotmail account from my user sign in account and update it with my current outlook email. Seems innocent enough. After much searching and finally finding out that you simply can't do this logical task, I found the 'magic formula' to achieve my goal. The problem is, Windows gives me an 0x80004005 error code after I complete filling out the information for the Local user, preventing it from being created. So it's not possible to switch to local, then switch back.

Accounts :: Phantom User Account

Feb 10, 2016

I upgraded my ASUS QF550/Windows 8.1 to Windows 10/Threshold II after the MS invitation. I'm also using ESET Smart Security.

The upgrade went smoothly and my computer is running better than ever. However, I've noticed that a mysterious phantom user account keeps appearing on my user list. I have a secure network and have changed the network and MS passwords since this began happening, yet the user account "ttnmlwzzn" still appears. Never any files or activity on it. Once deleted, after several sign-ins by me, it reappears. I am the only user and have administrator authority but I can't seem to permanently delete it.

My questions are: Is this something that is being added by Windows 10 and is this something to be concerned about? Is there some trick to getting it to remain deleted? Doesn't seem to hurt anything, but it's a bit annoying.

Should Change User Accounts To Desktops?

Nov 8, 2015

Possibly in Windows XP when it was installed, in order to have several desktops, dealing with various subjects, I simply created a whole bunch of User Accounts. So, I changed user accounts to get to the desktop I wanted.

Now that I have Windows10, is there an advantage to using the New Desktop feature? I'd just have one user account then.

I'm using Fences to sort my desktops.

Also, my data, which shows up in my desktops is stored on a separate partition from C drive.
