Default User name question

Ok, it seems that my user name is both Mike and ccity...

I changed my name from ccity -> Mike and in task manager and also in 'My Computer' it says ccity under users..Is there a way to change this so everything is Mike?

ccity is the old name that the computer made the folder. I don't think you can change the folder without affecting the system itself.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

No you can not change over the folder without adversly affecting the system. What you can do is change your name back. then create a new accoutn with the username you want. Then just copy the files over. Maybe this would work. MAYBE.
