Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

            I am currently finalizing some touch ups of an HP Pavilion which was just recently upgraded to Windows 8.1.   Thus far, I am very pleased with the progress, but, there is just one more thing I wish to resolve which brings me to the point of this opening post.  Basically, there are two account administrators, namely, the owner and me.  That said, I am wondering how I can customize this HP Pavilion through Windows 8.1 to boot each time to the owner's name instead of that of my own.  

             Thanks so much in advance for any attention and feedback given to this question.
