I rebuilt a PC for a friend for his daughters use. To activate Windows 10 I had to sign in to Windows with his account and of course it created an account with his name. Only his daughter will be using it. How can I change the account to her name while leaving his info so Windows stays activated? Thanks.

Thanks. Will this only change the user name on this specific PC? If there are several other PC's activated with same Microsoft account will they retain their original user name or will this change the name on all registered PC's? Thanks again.
