Renamed users uses old name RRS feed

  • Question

  • I noticed that WHS will not recognize a users new name.  I have a notebook with a user name of Bluegrass.  This user name was changed from the orginal of LAPTOP1.  Connect will not recognize the new user name even though I am logged in as the new user.  It looks strange to see the old user name listed on WHS while connected as the new user name.  I know this is all perfectly clear

  • Windows can change the description of a user but still have the same username.  You actually change the user name, you need to right click my computer, click manage, expand local users and groups, click users, then change the full name.  There you should be able to see the description and I am betting the problem lies there.
