Renaming Windows 8 user
Posted on 2014-10-06
I have a client with a Windows 8 PC that they would like to change the username, password, etc.
The problem is that someone already changed the name on the account thru the Users control. They also changed to password. The problem now is that Windows ended up just creating a new user & in order to make the new user an administrator I have to log in with the former user & their old password doesn't work, neither does the new password.
Is there anyway to log into Win8 without the original user's password 0r change the new user into an administrator without logging in as the original user??
Don't suggest talking to the original user as he died last year.
This sort of thing is the reason I do not like Win8!!
