If my computer is turned off and I login, the name above the pin number is in correct. I accidently put in the wrong name when I set up the computer
How can I change this? It shows Windows 10 version 1903

One of our forum moderators wrote extensively about something similar.
Although it is not for the faint of heart and involves some complicated steps, including editing the registry....
It might be worth a look.

It seems like there might be more wrong with the computer than just a username issue.
How often or under what other circumstances are you experiencing this freezing behavior?

If I may, it usually is best to create a second User with a slightly different name such as just 1 character different. Then reboot to log into that new user followed by removing the first and take possession of everything offered. Be sure use the same type account such as with Administrative rights. I've done this a few times and haven't had any problems. Because of the possibility of a corrupted Profile it can help without needing a reinstall.
