Strange behavior for @Username

4 posts in this topic

My machine is running windows 7 home premium.

My username is renamed using the config panel, user accounts, etc.

Now whem I'm trying to retrieve my username using @username, it gives me my old username!.

Any idea's/workarounds!?

Thanks!

@Username gives you the "ID of the currently logged on user". Has the ID changed (that's what you use when userid/password is requested for login)?

Also, you will notice that under the users folder in the root directory (C:), you will notice that your user's file is your old username. As I understand it, your username isn't changed, it just displays different text.

C: drive is also giving old username.

Username is changed using windows user accounts rename etc. (should do the trick)

But then, how do I retreive the new username!

PS it might have something to do with this similar situation: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-security/how-do-i-rename-the-built-in-administrator-account/50314c5c-db07-41f5-bd62-ee8f4d9a4f71
