    I have now remembered why I had two accounts; I hate having to use a password or a pin to get into my PC, and I prefer to have only one name on my local account!
    Is there any way to rename local account and to remove its password without changing the Windows account to which it is connected?
    I cannot find the "change name" option shown in the tutorial User Account Name - Change in Windows 8

    I disconnected my account from the Windows account and was amazed to find that the metro games (which is all I use on that side) were still available and that I can get into the store.
    Whether that will be the case after a reboot who knows?
    In the meantime I'll set up a second account like I did before.

    AH! The joys of play computers!
