:tazz: I hope some kind person can help me with this little problem.
The guy at the "computer clinic" who installed Windows XP Pro for me a few months ago spelled my name incorrectly - I assume that would be in the User Account or Log In name section.
I ignored this for a long time because I didn't want to unplug everything and take my computer back into the shop just to ask him to give me the missing letter that would spell my name correctly.
But I noticed that any documents I create in Word now show my name spelled this incorrect way.
Is there any way for me to FIX the spelling of my name without opening a new user account? If so, could you either explain "how to" in very simple terms, or if necessary, point me in the direction of the way to fix this.
Or would I be opening a can of worms and it would be best to just overlook this misspelling?
Thank you in advance for any advice you can share with me. :)
