" Dear Dennis,

Much thanks for your article on changing paths to the My Documents / Pictures folder -- however, this time I have a new question! Do you have any idea on how to change a login user name for Windows XP? For example: I want to modify my user account name in the Documents and Settings folder, as well as the Start menu and logon / log off screen names. Any ideas? "

My response:

You can change your login screen name, as well as password, picture, account type, and .NET passport options though the Control Panel. To do this:

  1. Click Start -> Control Panel > User Accounts
  2. Click the account, and then click 'Change my name'

Have fun!
