    Display Local Account Name Across 2 Lines on Start Screen


    Hi all,

    Currently, my local account name is displayed on one line in the start scren. I'm looking for a way to display the local account name across two lines, like what is done if I were signed in with a Microsoft account. That is, the first name in a larger font and the surname in a smaller font on the next line.


    Is anyone able to point me in the right direction here?


    Thanks,
    Joshua Todd Cowper

I have never seen a screen like this in the 20 years I've had my own computer. I had Windows 8 on a secondary drive as a dual boot with Windows 7 temporarily as I migrated to Windows 8. I somehow messed up either the boot loader or somehow corrupted the Win8 install for which I'll skip the...
