Changing Windows 8 User Account Password

Win8 Login ScreenUser AccountUser CredentialsEdit User CredentialsHi,
 
 I have Windows 8 PC and I did not set this up originally.
 Somehow this user uses 4 Digit PIN# to log in and his name is shown as "Lewis xxx", but somehow it is associated with his "lewisxxx@gmail.com".
 I like him to use "Lewis xxxx" as user name and regular password just like Windows 7 username/password. How can I, while keeping all of his desktop icons and all the files & documents intact (basically keeping his current profile), change his logon method so that he uses his username "Lewis xxx" and enter regular password instead of PIN#. I don't want his gmail account even associated in login process at all.

Thanks.

In your second screenshot you see the option "Change account type", that's what you need to do.
