I bought a refurbished Dell OptiPlex 780 mini tower. It came with windows10 Pro installed . I am not very experienced with windows 10 I just am now a bit familiar .
The issue is when they installed the windows OS they made their own administrator and I want to make it my own name . It's not a windows log in but a local login .
Does anyone know how I would do this. From what I understand go to control panel and you can change the name and I'm not sure if I can make a password .
I got this Dell tower refurb because of the funds I have and it works great . My last tower was an Acer M261 running XP Pro and it still works . In 2009 the old monitor died is was not a wide screen so someone set me a video card and I installed it and the drivers . The Dell has it's own built in video on the mother board and didn't offer my 1366 x 768 that is the only one my Dell IN1910N flat screen supports yet through my trying some how windows 10 Pro found a driver that works it's a forced PNP . I could probably use the video card from the Acer and then find the driver for windows 10 which is probably different than XP , not sure. Yet the windows driver seems to work well .
I used to be on this forum yet this year changed IP so my old email no longer works to log in.
my name is William I hope someone can help .
I do not work for dell. I am also a user.
Thank you . I saw the screen in the control panel you spoke of . I'm still lost when it comes to windows 10 , it will take some time since it's so different from XP . I will try what you suggested .
