That's just showing you the folder you are in. Was the account originally labeled N21? If so when you rename the account it keeps the same folder name, so even though technically you are eLabStudent the home folder is still N21.

Also if you type "whoami" at the comand prompt without the quotes you'll get the current logged in user.

Right click "Computer", select "Manage", select "Local users and Groups", click on "Users", and you should see "N21". Open that user and you should see "eLabStudent" as the full name.

Experts,

Thanks for responding.

Was the account originally labeled N21?
Yes
How can I fix it so that the profile states c:\users\elabstudent?

You have to create a new account by that name. But why bother?

I think, can't test it right now, if you make another account, log in to that account and delete (to be safe, rename) the folder and log back in that original account it will make a new folder with the new account name. The reason it keeps it is so you don't lose, or have to reconfigure your data / profile / options etc.  Note, doing what I said above, it will be like a fresh profile, all data and settings will be lost for that account because it will be like the first time logging into that account.
