  • Hi,

    The Owner name includes Computer name\your account name.

    Your account name appears in the yellow section of your picture. So try to change the account name.

    If I mis-understand, please point out. We could take ownership by using the steps provided by S.Sengupta. If you want to change the account name.

    Changing your name via Inbox
    •go to your outlook inbox → https://outlook.live.com/owa/
    •click on your name in the top right corner
    •click "Edit Profile"
    •click "Edit" behind your name

    Then apply changes to Windows 10.

    •open your Windows Settings

    •go to Accounts

    •select Sign in with a local account instead and complete changing your account to local

  • Each new file has this ownership name. I want to change this ownership name for all files that are new.
