Change your user name in Windows 7 (Rename your profile)

When you first run Windows 7, you have to choose a name for the primary account (Administrator); whenever you add Windows users, you also have to choose a display name for their profiles. But what if you want to change a Windows profile's name later on? Fortunately, this is not only possible, but quite easy. This tutorial will explain how to rename a profile (change the user's name) in Windows 7.

 

Rename a Windows profile in Windows 7

Follow these steps to rename a Windows profile (yours or someone else's).

And this is how you rename a profile in Windows 7, or change the name of another user account.
