Windows 10 user folder name truncated

I installed Windows 10 from an iso as a fully new installation. My user name is my jiyuushikan.org account nameandrew
mydomainname but the folder put up in User has actually been truncated to 5 characters, so that Documents is at C:UsersAndreDocuments and also not at C:UsersAndrewDocuments.

You watching: Windows 10 user folder name truncated

At this time I have Documents at a different location on my Surface to my desktop computer, whichrenders itdifficult to use.

I deserve to check out that reinstalling and using a local account name before connecting my account to my jiyuushikan.org account name would certainly most likely correct this, but is non trivial and would certainly take a day to implement.

Is tbelow any kind of way I deserve to change the location of my User folder to what I consider to be the correct place?

Hi Amacabama,

Thank you for posting the query on jiyuushikan.org Community.

I understand your concern, user name is taken by the device instantly once you setup Windows on the computer for the first time. So it have the right to not be readjusted currently.

However before clean Installation may readjust the name.

I found I had actually to perform a reinstall anymeans so:

1. I reset up making use of a local account in my name

2. I ran the mail application which converts the local account right into a MS account

Now okay. Drastic but efficient.

Sorry to hijack this thread, it was the only one I can view with a similar situation,yet I have actually just reinstalled Windows 10 as a fresh install and noticed this once the batch documents I had actually composed to move my papers earlier failed. It has created a user folder of just 5 characters.

I will be reporting this as a bugon the Feedago tool as it shouldnot be doing this as it can cope through much longer usernames if a localaccount.

Other than the reinstall, making use of a regional account then converting it to a jiyuushikan.org account, whichis not right as I think it doesn"t fully transform the account, is tright here any type of various other solution?

This will certainly reason difficulties syncing records between 2 computers and also confusion if two civilization through equivalent names share a PC. I think this is a mistake on jiyuushikan.org"s part.

I agree via you. It should be an insect fairly than intentionally name the user folder only making use of 5 letters.

This is anaggravating bug that"s just plaindisrespectful to human being. It is unprofessionaland rude to resolve one more person whom you are not familiar via, not using their correct name. Whatever motivation jiyuushikan.org might have had actually was wrong.

It is favor saying, sure, I will store your records, whomever before you, are in a folder you can not readjust, and also I do not really offer a rat"s &^% wright here I put them.

Your firm has actually billions and also billions of Dollars, and also this is the finest you all can do? Wright here does the money go? What carry out you all spend it on? Or did someone actually think, and also I use that term loosely, actually think that this was helpful, or a attribute, that someone might actually desire their name truncated?

Somehow, the display fading impacts during the install worked. Somehow you even managed to remove the method of addressing it. Someexactly how you regulated to turn Windows 10 into the biggest item of spyware, I have ever viewed.
