To begin, I am a registered member but have not been here in awhile - I have misplaced my login credentials and must post anonymously.
I recently purchased a new laptop and am cleaning up my old one and giving it to a friend. This older laptop runs Windows 10.
The issue seems simple but I have researched it and cannot get the change(s) to take.
When the machine boots to the login screen it has been showing my name and picture; I am trying to alter it to show HER name and picture. The picture part works. I cannot get the name change, though.
I attempted the following:
- I created a new admin account for her (at the moment I am also still an admin on the old machine)
- I created a new online Microsft account for her; new email, etc. The name, online in the Microsoft account is her name, but when I reboot it still displays my name.
- I have have tried various changes last night on the old machine (I cannot remember them all now). Although many online tutorials claim that one may change the usename via the machine settings on Win10, this no longer seems to be the case; I suppose this has to do with updates, system changes and that those videos are out-dated.
Simply put, I just want her name and picture to display when the old machine boots, not mine.
Note: I have both she and I set as admins on the old machine. Also, I have disabled password capabilities for login (Her account was never logged into via her new account/pass, etc. Could this be the issue?)
I am a bit frazzled with this seemingly simple task. Thank you in advance for any assistance.
