    User Name Question


    This is going to sound like a silly question, but here we go. I just installed windows 8 on my PC. I would like to have to User Accounts on it. One that looks like this: My Name - Work. And one that looks like this: My Name - Home. I can not for the life of me figure it how to change the user names that are displayed on the login screen. I have a separate gmail account that I would like linked to each account name. Any help would be appreciated.
