Hi there. I have been trying to have a different user name. Have tried several methods, like changing user name in users and changing profilepath in the registry. That resulted in a temp user login. I ended up restoring my files. So I created a user with the name I wanted. The problem is that it doesn't copy everything, like the settings (login background/desktop arrangement). Neither did it copy the Google Drive, and I haven't been able to get access to it or getting it to sync. All that even though I created a third user to copy everything from the original to a new user. Finally, in system/advanced settings/user profile, the CopyTo function is always greyed out, no matter whether I am logged on or not. Is there a good way to handle all that? I've read so many howtos in forums, but they don't mention these pitfalls. Thanks in advance for your help.
