Windows 8.1: How to change the user name

Hi

I have windows 8.1. When enabling this laptop, i am not aware that i use the email address which is actually used for Windows Live ID.

I would like to change it as "Just a local user" without linking to an email. How can I do it now

Thanks,
tjie

You should also be able to do this by going to User Accounts in Control Panel and changing the email account to a local account. I have done this a long while back.

Be sure to back up your User Documents first.
