Windows server 2012 R2 administrator user account

Hi all,
I'm having a problem with the administrator user account, is not a big deal but I need to remove this. The server was a DC but I have demoted it so now is working locally only, in user accounts there are only 2 accounts(administrator and guest) but when  I go to CMD
it says:
C:\Users\Administrator.OSCARSERVER>

and I need it only to be as:
C:\Users\Administrator>

How do I remove the .OSCARSERVER??

Thanks in advance.

Why?  Who cares?  Are you trying to script something?  That's the only reason I can think of why you might want to care... but even scripting has an answer for this that doesn't require you to change it.  

The easiest way to change it is:
0. BACKUP the existing administrator account profile
1. create a new administrator account with a DIFFERENT name
2. Log in to the computer with the new account.
3. go to the system control panel, profiles button, and delete the existing administrator profile (as well as the old domain admin account profile
4. log out.
5. log back in as the administrator account (it should recreate the profile and give you what you want.

Of course, while it doesn't matter and doing this is an exercise in futility in my opinion, you also should NOT be using the administrator account - you should be DISABLING it and using a different account with admin rights.
