    This picture shows how my name has been changed in User Accounts and in regedit, as displayed by running winver, but yet all my files are still found at C:\Users\Owner.
    When I go to C:\Users, the Owner folder is locked and cannot be renamed even though my account type is administrator, as seen here.


    How do I really change the name from Owner to a name of my choosing?
