How to rename a (local) user account in Windows 10

Before Windows 10, it was possible to rename a user account by right-clicking its folder under C:\Users.

Windows 10 has made this process much more elaborate.

  1. In the search box, type user accounts and click on User Accounts.
  2. Click on "Change your account name".
  3. If you're prompted for a password. enter it and click Yes. If you do not have any passwords, click Yes.
  4. Enter the new desired user name.
  5. Click change name.

This a typical example of what Microsoft means by "user-friendly operating system".

A simple routine operation turned into a nightmare.

I don't understand why people are willing to endure this misery just to stick with Windows.

Masochism? It would take an analyst to answer and that's not in my skill set.
