When installing, W11 automatically created the admin folder using my name but a final letter has been cut off. Is there a way to correct it in my admin account without creating admin-2 (I once did it in W10)? It asks for a user with Microsoft email but I don't have any other Outlook/Hotmail account. Just create a dummy email for this purpose?

Ah yes. Thank you.

Enabling the built-in admin.

UPD. From the built-in admin account a new user with a corrected folder name has been created. Old user account has been deleted.
