Create a new account calling it what you like, then return to the User Profiles dialog and copy the old one to the new one uising the Copy To button. Both accounts must be logged off following a reboot in order for this to succeed (third account needed). Alternatively, use USMT which you can download from the Microsoft downloads site - latest version is 5.
You can also use the utility Windows Easy Transfer bundled in Windows.
yeah thats what I did not want to do . . I thought maybe I could do a simple regedit of some sort to change the name. I know this would work in Windows 7 but how do you use the above way with Windows 8 when creating a new user asks you for a Microsoft account? Sorry to ask . .
