    windows profile

    Not understanding what win7 was asking for I ended up with a first name last name user account and a first name profile. So the explorer tree shows both. I'd like to merge the two so it is only first name last name. Got some help but it didn't work. thanks.

    My guess is that when you set up the thing, you had a space between the first and last name. The profile stopped at the space, resulting in only the first name being used. However, since folder names can have spaces in them, the folder name used both first and last names.

    Set up another user account, and this time, don't put a space in the name. I'll bet the profile name and folder name match when you do that. You can then use the new account rather than the old.

    I do not believe you can merge the two. Perhaps you can move everything you need into the one you wish to keep, then delete the other user profile.
