Long story short, my hard drive crashed about 6 months ago and I had to get a new one and reinstall a fresh copy of Mountain Lion. In the replacing of the hard drive, the Apple tech took the liberty of naming the home folder for me. To much of my dismay, he didn't capitalize my name.

As tiny as this is, I find it very annoying to see my name uncapitalized - especially when everything else in the Finder menu is!

Does anyone know how to change the name? The edit box is grayed out when I click "more info."

I have attached screenshots.

Thanks! :apple: :p

Thanks for that. Apparently it's not possible. You must have a name that is non-capitalized and only containing letters.

Not sure whose bright idea that was... :(

Have you seen these instructions (http://www.cultofmac.com/126621/how-to-move-or-rename-your-mac-home-folder-macrx/)? I don't know if it'll work though.
