  1. You say “Place your cursor in the file path field” obviously assuming we all know what file path feild is. If people dont know how to access the username then they probably dont have much knowledge of computers. WTF is a file path field?. Absolute useless

  2. This was beautiful, elegeant directions. With pictures so anyone with pc knowledge can slap themselves in the head and say aloud, “So THAT’S my windows user name!”

  3. Thanks for sharing this informative post with us. Find username, follow the instructions. Though this article uses Windows 10, the instructions apply to older versions of Windows as well.

    1. Why don’t you invest a little money in some English lessons there friend, before you start using this language to patronize folks or talk ‘down’ (aka: ‘shit’) to other people just because they didn’t zero in on YOUR problem and solve it for you in an anonymous reply to a shit?post, simply because you requested, quite abrasively, “requested”, I should add, that someone give you the answer that you want dammit, and right now then ya!

      But what the hell do I know.., ya know. I’m not smarter than any one else here. Just some dude in a hat, sharing my opinions I have gathered throughout my trolling about, last hour or so. So you’re welcome, I guess. Or possibly I mean excuse me. Whichever should satisfy whomever should read all this bullshit I’m yakking about here. For the record, I sincerely do not care one bit about any of this. So declared. I must go now. Gotham needs me.

      P.S. I’ve got no clue who this “Bruce Wayne” guy is, I definitely never heard of him ever. He sounds super handsome and cool though…. I bet he’s rich too. Happy weekend, motherfuckers! And a good day, to youze..!
