perRename the personal folder

#1
I just got my new laptop with Windows 7 yesterday.
My name is Janet but my personal folder says Jamet
Is there an easy way to change this? Or just live with it.
I don't know what the personal folder is there for anyway I seems to me it is just another My Documents.
Thank You.
And yes I feel silly.

just to add , incase it is the actual login name for the pc you can do the following

go to start

control panel

users accounts and family safety


under the heading you should see "add or remove user accounts" click this,

you should then see all the useranmes for the accounts on the pc. If one says JAMET, click the name

click change account name

type new accoutn name and click on ok

restart your pc and see if its changed the name as you requested

Hello Janet,
to Windows7Forums

Try this see if it helps;

To Change Your Account Name follow this path:
Click "Start/Control Panel/User Accounts and Family Safety/User Accounts

1. Make Changes to your user account
2. Change your account name
3. Type a new account name

That should do it

When I first set up Win 7 my a/c name was Elner. Well, it tickled my funny bone (ulna/ulner).

Thank you all, I have been re born with my real name.
I just have a few computer things to figure out and I should be good to go.

I need to go and make my backup then start making folders and filling up this big hard drive...
Thank you again all of you..

I got out my memory cards and started putting my photos on my computer and noticed that they were going into C://Jamet/Photos...............will this cause any problems down the road? As long as I only see it there it don't bother as much I just don't want it to mess with me later...
Thanks again.
