You can change the display user names in Control Panel. Right click on the Start button, choose Control Panel, then go to User Accounts. However, the old names will remain the same in File Explorer under the Users folder.

To change both display name and folder name under Users, you have to create new accounts in Control Panel > User Accounts and delete the old account.
