    User Name not correct.


    When I created my User Account I named my Self Jack B..... (end of last name) It showed as JackB_000 for some reason, I thought it was because my Account name was to long. So I changed my full name into just my first name, the user account stayed the same, only changing to what I set in Metro and Start8 (Start8 is an alternative to Metro bringing back the start bar).

    If you know how to fix this please help me

    How to rename user account?

    Avoid using spaces in the user name, and you'll be fine. You can set the display name the way you want in the user account settings (control panel).
