Change Path of Desktop in Win 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was setting up windows  and I misnamed the login to e.g. UserName_Wrong. It created a path to the the desktop and profile of C:\Users\UserName_Wrong which you would expect. I changed the name to e.g. UserName but the path stays C:\Users\UserName_Wrong. Is there a way of changing it to  C:\Users\UserName without breaking stuff!

  • Hello Fresno Bob,

    I think the only way would be to change it back to UserName_Wrong, create a new username named UserName and copy all of the documents and desktop from the UserName_Wrong folder to the UserName folder.
