If you are referring to the name on your user account, to change the name you go Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Click on "Change an account", you pick on an account to change, click on "Change my name", type up a new name and last click the "Change Name" button.

How do i change my user name


If it's a wordpress site then you need to log in with your current name, create a new user name first and give it full admin rights and a password. You can then log in with the new user name as admin and delete your old user name. I'm guessing that it will be the same process for other web sites as well.

Create and Change Password, Picture and User Name in Windows 7


In Windows 7, the logon screen usually contains a picture that you choose when setting up the computer and a default user name. Since I purchased my computer from Best Buy, the picture was already set and the user name was simply User.
Not very unique! The first thing I did when I got my computer was to change the user name and change my user picture. That is what I’ll explain in this article.
Change User Name in Windows 7 First, click on Start and then Control Panel. Then click on User Accounts and Family Safety.

On the next screen, click on the User Accounts heading at the very top.
2.png
Finally, click on Change your account name to actually change the user name. If you want to change the user name for a different account, click on Manage another account.
3.png
Now type in the new user name that you desire and click the Change button.
51.png That’s it! Once you click Change, you’ll be back to the previous screen with a preview of the new login screen.
4.png Change User Picture in Windows 7 To change the user account picture, simply click on the Change your account picture link in the second step above.
5.png You can either choose from the default pictures in Windows 7 or you can click the Browse for more pictures link. Once you have chosen the desired picture, click on the Change Picture button.
Change/Create User Password in Windows 7 If you want to create a password for your user account or change the current password, click on the Change Windows password link.
7.png If you don’t already have a password setup for your user account, you can click on the Create a Windows 7 password for your account link, otherwise you can click Change your password.
8.png So those are the most common three tasks when managing user accounts in Windows 7.

Bought from someone else need to put my nane on it


You have to make 2 changes, One for the computer and one for the user. Here is how you do both:
CHANGE COMPUTER NAME:
  1. Right click my computer and select properties
  2. Select "Advanced System Settings" (skip if win xp)
  3. Select "Computer Name" tab
  4. click "change"
  5. Enter the name of your choice
CHANGE USER NAME:
You cannot change a user account by just changing the name. Just changing the name will make a cosmetic change only and not affect the underlying files/folders in the profile.

1. From an account with administrative privileges, go to Control Panel>User Accounts and create the new Standard user account named the way you want and at least one extra Administrator account. Call the latter "CompAdmin" or "Tech" or the like.
2. Log into the new Standard user account once so the profile files/folders are created and then log into CompAdmin.
3. Now go to Control Panel>System>Advanced>User Profiles>Settings
4. You will see where you can copy user accounts. Copy the old account to the new one from there. Use the Browse to select your new account (C:\Users\newaccount).
5. Log into the new correctly named account and make sure all your stuff is there and that it works the way you want. When you are satisfied, you can log out and into CompAdmin and delete the old user account from Control Panel>User Accounts.

If you wish to log into your new, corrected account automatically, do this:Start Orb>Search box>type: netplwiz [enter]
Click on Continue (or supply an administrator's password) when prompted by UAC

Uncheck the option "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Select a user account to automatically log on by clicking on the desired account to highlight it and then hit OK. Enter the correct password for that user account (if there is one) when prompted. Leave it blank if there is no password (null).

My password is okay but my user name is not its for yahoo.com


Changing your Yahoo user name is not possible. Yahoo is a free email service and it does not have a feature that will allow you to change your user name.

If you would like to have a different user name, you need to create a new Yahoo mail account. Once created, you need to forward the important emails and contacts from your old Yahoo mail to your new one.

Thank you and good luck!
