Can I Add A New Computer With The Same Username? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello:

    I would like to add a second computer with the same User Name.  In Windows 8.1, it doesn't give you a choice of local PC user names.  It just uses whatever name you set up in your Microsoft Account.

    I installed my first Windows 8.1 machine using my Windows Account name.  Now I am adding a second machine.  Since it is the same Windows account, the user name will be the same.

    Is that an issue?

    Thanks,

  • I have several computers that I log in with the same user name on and have never had a problem.  WHS2011 does not seem to care about the users name, only the computer name.
