Hello and welcome to the forum.
Can you be a bit more specific as to what you are calling "user file"?
Do you mean your entire user profile folder or the individual contents of the user profile folder?

It's the entire folder, on my windows 7 computer the file was my name. Somehow when I was setting up my new windows 10 computer I gave it the wrong name. I think it happened when I started to use sign in with a local account, I started to type in a user name and changed my mind and x out the window. The partial name I entered became the name on my user file. I have gone back and entered my full name in the sign in with a local account , but it did not change the file name. It does not effect the operation of anything, it just bugs me when I see it.

I'm pretty sure you can't effectively rename it with a positive outcome.
You can create a new profile (named properly) and move everthing from one into the other,
