    You won't be able to delete an account you're already logged into. Is that the problem?

    OP, are you trying to rename your admin account? What precisely is your goal?

    The account that is shown under "My Account" is the account that you are logged into.

    Lets say your current account is SUFI. You want to make a new account EVAN.

    So if you create a new account (EVAN) using your current account (SUFI), the EVAN account will show up in the "Other Account" section. But once you log in using EVAN, the EVAN account will show up under "My Account" section, and SUFI will show up under "Other Accounts".

    So what you can do is log in using SUFI, create a new admin account EVAN. Log into using EVAN, and then delete SUFI. I believe that is what you are trying to achieve here. If not, I request more clarification.

    But I have to admit that your question really made me think as to how much I had to drink tonight. (which is 0)
