Our former network guy used ALL CAPS for everything in Active Directory. Is it possible to rename everything? I didnt want to have to delete users and re add them....

    Hi JRockFL,

    you can rename objects by right clicking them, all the other properties you will have to key in

    Thanks for your reply. I went to Active Directory Users and Computers, then to the OU and then to the user and changed the first name, last name and display name, but it still shows in all caps. Any ideas?
