    Resolved [RESOLVED] windows 10 log in deafult log in name change

    having an issue with windows 10 , I have myself as two users.,, one is ttodd and the other is terry. both of them me ..

    my terry account is associated with the login 'xxxxx@outlook.com' with accessible password/pin ,, this is ok and works ,,

    the other is also myself ' ttodd with log in xxxxx@shaw.ca ' password/pin also works and is ok ..

    problem is when I first bring up the start up log in page of windows 10 ( with beach scene) & the 'default' log in with id and password in it shows ttodd.,
    Not what I want to see., I want Terry ,, (more pleasant and was like this for months on end ..) until I dicked around and changed my account settings for log in .,

    but when I go to change this Back to the log in I prefer.,,,,, windows informs me that 'that user is already associated with windows and will not allow me to use this '.. .
    why and how to fix?? .. I have already tried a LOG out and log in ( doesn't work..) both these names allow me to log in with password but I want the user name of Terry locked into the opening first picture of windows 10 not ttodd., can anyone help?

    Thanks !! see Sig for details on windows 10 version 1803

    ok (I knew my question is out of the ordinary for trouble shooting ..) so here is the screen shot of my own two users I am currently on 11/11 2018 of myself to windows 10 'opening' screen shot ... ,

    I wanted to only open Terry from sept 2018 .. to my opening screen shot
    So what would happen if I deleted to recycle bin the ttodd file? and then would it force Terry to open only .?

    If not..,,, what would happen if I deleted terry to recycle bin and renamed ttodd to Terry.. would that work ??

    You can't just delete user accounts like that without causing all sorts of trouble. Not recommended.

    Possibly useful links.

    all three won't help or I'm afraid I'll crash the good set up I'm currently employing ..

    What have you actually tried?

    If you are concerned about making changes you can't undo, create an image backup first.

    Changing the default user account for login should not have any other undesired effects.

    OK got it done ... found the solution through the accounts / sign in won't go into the path of my fix but the answer was the finding of old email address and correct password .. lots of hoops ... but I have my page looking fine .
