Settings > System > About has a button that'll let you rename the PC

 

I haven't tried this and the article does mention possible issue with Lenovo products, but give this a look.

Let us know.

 

Thanks

This is a Windows question rather than anything specific to the Yoga Book so you could find more information elsewhere.

 

But you can:

Back up your data, including anything in your users folders.

Do a reset - instructions here:

https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/reset-windows-10-pc

or here:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4026528/windows-10-reset-or-reinstall

 

(If you choose to keep your data you'll have remnants of your MS account left on the device which you may not want using up your storage space and you may not have access to it unless you sign into your MS account.)

 

When it's done and reboots to setup - don't use a Microsoft account but choose the option to use a local account instead. Then reinstate any stuff you need from the backup.

 

But you should read up on using a local account before commiting yourself - there may be other downsides to it you don't want.

 

As DoctorDon says there are security issues about using a computer this way - that's more of an issue these days than it used to be.
