    Is it possible to change the name of the user account?

    I am currently an administrator of a resident computer in Assisted Living facility. I have created some user accounts with the first names so that the owners can identify them. Some residents have left so they no longer need these accounts and I know the passwords of these accounts as well. How can I change the user name of the accounts?

    You will see where you can copy user accounts copy the new one from there use the browse option to select your new account
    Log into the new correctly named account and make sure all new stuff is there
    Then log out from there and delete the older account.
