    Keep the full name of a local account

    Hi

    Using Windows 8 Enterprise 64 bit, I have noticed that the full name of a local account (set with the net users "<username>" /fullname:"<full name>" command) is deleted whenever I switch from a Microsoft account to the local account associated with it. So, how do I have to prevent this?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Basically, my problem is this:

    I create a local account and then I modify his full name:

    Code:
    C:\Windows\system32> net users "Balubeto_Balubeto" /fullname:"Balubeto Balubeto"
    The command completed successfully.
    
    C:\Windows\system32> net users "Balubeto_Balubeto"
    Username                                          Balubeto_Balubeto
    Full name                                         Balubeto Balubeto

    At this point, I restarted the computer and I log onto this account.

    Now, I switch it in a Microsoft account following the procedure http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...ndows-8-a.html and then I restart the computer.

    So, I log onto Microsoft account, and, following the procedure http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...ndows-8-a.html, I switch it back to the local account.

    Now, the local account information are:

    Code:
    C:\Windows\system32> net users "Balubeto_Balubeto"
    Username                                          Balubeto_Balubeto

    As you can see the field "Full name" is empty. How come?

    How do I avoid that this field changes value?

    Thanks

    Bye
