    Hello Mueenhasan,

    The best way to do so would be to create a new account with the name you wanted.

    However, the tutorial below can help show you how to properly change the name of your "C:\Users\(user-name)" folder. It's the same procedure in Windows 8.

Hi there, In Win-7, as an admin-user, it was easy to change the picture from another user. In Win-8 I'm only able to find where I can change my own picture. Can't I set it anymore for other users? Cheers.
