Can I set up Win10 user accounts with the same names I used in Win7?

    I'm starting fresh with Win10 and I'm restoring from a Win7 backup, which had three users: one admin account using a first name, and two standard accounts using names like "John's iTunes" and "Mary's iTunes".

    My restore will have these names under "Users". I thought I should set up the accounts before doing the restore, but the system seems determined to prevent me from doing so.

    Can I get what I want?

    In a local account scenario yes you can use whatever accounts, the same ones included, on the new system. You may want to create a temporary account during the install, restore the backup, then delete the temp account.
