Windows 10 account and password messed up

    Question

  • If this is not the correct forum kindly repost.

    I did a clean install of Windows 10. It came to the menu where we have to create a user name and set password. I typed An and by mistake hit return or clicked on something. The screen vanished and I was logged in. Fine now when reboot the system does not prompt for credentials at all. If I hit Ctrl-Alt-del and go to change password, I get the usual screen with my user name as An and it asks for the Old Password. If I leave it blank that does not work. I dont have a old password. So I went to Control Panel and changed An to a meaningful name. I rebooted and if I do Cterl-Alt-Del I get back my An user name but if I go Control Panel --> User account I get the meaningful name. I am in a mess. Can some kind soul help me. I Googled and wasted lot of time no use.

    My objective is to delete the account An and create a new Admin account with good password. BTW it does log me directly as Admin.  Admin.
