I tried to change the name for my account user name Folder , but do not have the features as in this guide , Im using windows 8 , here is the guide Link - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tut...

scroll to "Computer Management" , when I expand to the System Tools folder, I see that I do not have a "Local Users and Groups folder" , 1st problem
=========================================
2nd problem
scroll down to Method 2 - where it says Run this program "secpol.msc" , I get message Windows can not find secpol.msc , because windows 8 Home edition does not have this.
=========================

so what other option is there if I want to change my "users Folder name" ??

✔ Best Answer
Actually, from what you describe, what I believe you're trying to do is rename the default Administrator account, not a "User Name Folder."

The third paragraph explains that if you're running the Home version of the OS, follow Method 4.

It's good that you're renaming the account...always a smart move security-wise.
