Working with WIN10 Enterprise. My mom's name is on the main user account. How do I change it. When I open the Settings screen "Accounts" , "Your Info", there is no way to edit the user name under the Local account administrator.

thanks

One of the issues with the Enterprise edition is it usually is for company computers, is that the case here?

Our church was given 4 Dell Notebooks with Win7 but they had a password that required logging into the company server. Since that was no longer possible and I had a copy of the OEM software I reformatted and installed then Upgraded to Win10, worked good. Then they got 3 more with the same password issue, Lenovo and IBM Thinkpads, but I don't have their software so they are good paperweights unless they want to buy copies of Win10.
