- Rename profile folder on Windows 7/8 5 answers
I bought a used Windows computer which was reset to stock with the default Administrator user named "John Doe". I have changed my "username" to what I want but the user's account folder still retains the name "John Doe". I've researched this and found a number of registry changes (which I'm not comfortable doing). I've read I can create another user, move all the contents to the new one, and delete the old account...but then will my applications continue looking for the old account's folder?
Please help. I'm simply trying to change the name of the root user folder to my name in lieu of "John Doe".
