You cannot change your username on the site. You may however ask for this account to be deleted and then set up a new account and a new username. Contact and they will help you with this.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I change the Users name in C:?

It is not clear whether you are talking about the Account Name or not.

If you are concerned about how to change the account name, then click on Start Button, then go to Control Panel. Change the View by option to Category (if it is already there, leave it) and click over Add or Remove User Account under User Accounts and Family Safety (if you are not an administrator, you have to enter the administrator password).

Now Click over the Account of which you wish to change the name and select Change the Account Name. Enter the new account name and press change name.

If you are not talking about this one, then make a clarification comment over this reply.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

How do I unlock a mac book's username

You can change the Full Name of a user account by going into System Preferences -> Accounts, and then selecting the account, and changing the text in the Full Name text box. It is not advisable to change the name of your home folder/account name however. This is because a lot of files and folders are linked to this name, and changing it will mess with the file associations. If you want to change the name of the account/home folder, I would suggest creating a new account with the name you want, transfer any files, folders and settings, and then delete the old account.
