    When I log in with a local account the user is "Mike".

    This is the only account on the VM as seen in Control Panel/User Accounts.

    But in C/Users/ my user folder is "michaelb" which is my mac user account name.

    I have a shortcut on my Windows desktop to user Mike, which opens the same folder as C/Users/michaelb

    Under Configuration/Options/Sharing/Shared profile "share mac user folders with Windows" is unchecked.

    On my other mac the two are the same.

    How can I make them the same on this mac.

    Thanks

    When you do a new install of Windows 10 in a new VM does Parallels automatically give it the user name of the Mac user?

    Seems to be easy to change the log in name but very hard to change the user folder name from reading up.
