    One of our machines was used by Norman and is now used by Dora.

    The User Name has changed ok, but the in 'C:\Documents and Settings\User\' it still shows Norman.

    How can I change it to Dora.

    I think the easiest and safest way is to start a new user profile named Dora, migrate data and settings over to it and then get rid of Norman.

    I can only find migrating referring to changing machines/operating systems.

    How do I do it from person to person

    You set up a new user account named Dora. You then open windows explorer and drag things you want on the Norman user to the proper areas in the Dora user. Each will have a favorites, contacts, music, photos, etc. Drag all the stuff you want to Dora. Once you have every thing you want, if norman is no longer going to use the PC, get rid of the Norman user profile.
