Hey Guys.

I recently installed windows 10 pro on an HP all in one, I have several Computers up and running all of them I sign in with my actual name and a pin number, but for some reason when I installed windows pro on the HP it is coming up with my e-mail account as the sign in name instead of my actual name.

I tried running netplwiz and clicked properties on the account with my e-mail and there is my full name. so can anyone give me a hand to change the account sign-in name, oh one other thing I did try the "sign in with a local account" and got a message that windows could not guarantee that all my data would be synced or something like that.

Thanks in advance.
