Windows 11 Pro 23h2 64bit 22631.2715
Windows 11 S Mode version 22h2
I have given the task to change the user to a Levono laptop that has been passed to another staff member and would like to know the best way to achieve the task.

The laptop now has just one administrator user who will no longer be using the laptop thus deleting all the user data and then I need to change the present user to a new user without reinstalling Windows.
Which is the best way to achieve this?

Then change Windows S Mode to Windows Home.
And then share Microsoft Office Family to new user.

Correct me if I am wrong, but you could create a second administrator user in Settings, Accounts, Other Users. Then log off from current user and login to the new user to create its user folders. If you need to copy data from previous user (say user1) to new user (say user2), you can navigate to the folder C:\Users\user1 and proceed after the warning that you need Administrator rights to access the folder. After several seconds you should be able to see the user1 folder contents and copy what you need to the new user folder. If it is not possible to do so in Windows 11 S, you must convert to standard Windows 11 Home first.

What @spapakons said, mostly the way I do it and a good way to install Win11 as needed then change out of needing the Microsoft Account by removing that User. Don't forget to make the new User Local Account as Administrator, always need at least one so as to make changes. Haven't needed to do it but I'd change out of the S mode before adding the new account.

Changing the user name only changes the name that appears at login screen. The folder name of the user remains the same. Not very convenient when you try accessing the user via Command Prompt or PowerShell. Yes, after you create the second user and copy all the data you need, you can delete the first user and free the disk space.

It might not be necessary to exit S mode to do these, but do it anyway to get rid of the ridiculous requirement running only apps and games from Windows Store. Disabling S mode allows you to use any other "traditional" desktop app or game you want plus allowing you to update your drivers straight from the manufacturer's support site.

Last summer I was tasked to fix a man's Notebook and found he had been advised to create a second User as a Local Account. He did BUT he used the exact same name for the second one, no additional folders were created in C:\Users\USERNAMEHERE so all new docuents went into the original User's folders, quite a mess and ended up reinstalling Win10 and explaining that each User added has to have a different name by at least one character just like a folder and files in it, can't have 2 or more of the same exact name.

I thought Windows would give a warning if the user name is taken and would not allow you to proceed.

I was under the same impression until I saw it actually happen but haven't wanted to replicate it. It may have been done off-line and wasn't caught.
