    Guys I just upgraded from 64 bit Windows 7 to 10 and chose not to carry files, programs, etc. over. I backed up my User's folder to an external hard drive and have just begun copying and pasting back what I want. The User folder contains both mine and my wife's users accounts. So file path on mine is C > Users > Mike.

    I've noticed that Windows 10 named my pc mccoa (which is part of my name) when it set things up. I went back and renamed my pc Office-PC but it still shows C > Users > mccoa and it won't let me rename it. Guess not really a big deal but is there anyway I can change it to Mike?

    Too easy. Just look this link: how-can-i-change-my-pc-s-user-name

    Works on Windows 10 too.

    Well guess I did something wrong and messed up my User account and had to do a Reset. Guess I'll leave it like it is. I have a few more questions though:


    1. Don't quite understand why there is both a "This PC" & Local Disk C. Both seem to have the same folders?

    2. I want to copy my backed up iTunes folder to Windows 10. Since the iTunes folder is available from both "This PC" & Local Disk C file path will it matter which one I choose to replace with my backed up iTunes folder? I don't want to confuse iTunes and it not know where my files are.

    3. I copied & pasted all my wife's photos from my external drive into "Pictures" on Windows 10. Why did I end up with all these extra folders which appear to be associated with the external drive... I've never had that happen before? It doesn't give me the option to delete either, anything I can do about this?

    4. Within Windows 10 "Picture" folder it has a "Camera Roll" & Saved Pictures folder. When transferring your pictures into this folder should they just be dumped into the general folder or go into the "Saved Pictures" folder?
