When you install Windows 95a and Windows 98se, you choose a user name and password to log onto Windows. My Win9x laptops have only one user (one registered user). These are not new installations. I need to change the existing user name on each laptop to make them unique and want to choose shorter names without spaces. Then I need to choose new passwords. How do I do this?

Unless you are connected to a network there is no real reason to have a user name and password setup on 95, 98, & ME, you can just hit the ESC key to bypass the logon.

However there is a way to eliminate the logon option altogether.

Go to:

Control Panel>Passwords>User Profiles. Check All users use the same
settings. Do not reboot at this point.


Control Panel>Network Connections>Primary Network logon set to Windows logon. Reboot.


When the machine reboots, enter a user name and leave the password
blank. Click Ok, not Cancel. If asked to confirm the blank password,
click Ok, not Cancel.

I am connected to a network of XP machines. That's why I need to change the user names (and passwords) on 95/98. Please tell me how to do it. Thanks.
