How can I change the owner of a computer or a cell phone


Hi Wayne,

In order to change your username registered on the computer, you need to change information in your registry.

a. Click Start, type regedit in the search box and press ENTER.

b. navigate to the

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

Note: The current Version will be two editable sections called RegisteredOrganization and RegisteredOwner in the right side.

c. double-click on RegisteredOwner and enter your information in the "Value data" section, and click OK.

d. exit the registry editor and restart the computer.

Your new values will be present when you open the properties of the computer.

Important: The above article contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you proceed with caution. For added protection, back up the registry before you edit it. Then you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, follow the steps from the link below:

Back up the registry

Hope this information is useful.

  • How can I change the OWNER of a table?

    How can I change the OWNER of a table entr2009mm?

    Or the OWNER of all TABLES including tablename match the pattern * 2009 *?



    There are different posiibilities, Import/Export can do.

    But, if it is not a too large Table, you can use ETG (from a user with DBA privileges for example).

    Create Table . as select * from .;.

    Then, you must re-create the dependent objects (Index,...) and remove the Table Source.

    If you have a set of Tables, it is preferable to use Export/Import.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Yossi,

    Changing the owner to an empty value did not work properly for some reason any.

    This error message do you receive? I would not recommend this approach even if it happened to save the update, as you noted, it is safer to perform explicit reassignment as below to make sure the correct visibility on the issue.

    Change of ownership of a specific owner id has worked, including the administrator and the web service ID, and it seems like a safer way to do it.

    How can I change the time on my computer from 24 hour to 12 hour clock clock?

    Here is the method for Windows 7. If you are using Vista, there may be a slight difference, but basic procedures should be similar...

    Start > Control Panel > region and language > Format > more settings > time tab >

    under time format, set hh: mm hh: mm

    H = 24 hours

    h = 12 hours

    Click OK when finished.

  • How can I change the owner of a Mac while keeping the software?


    I saw online sales of used sellers Mac with the included software. A part of the software includes Adobe CS6 Master Collection, Final Cut Pro X, Microsoft Office, etc.

    If I buy the laptop, how I would change the possession of the laptop to me while keeping the software on the computer?

    If I have to use my Apple ID, wouldn't that let me use Final Cut Pro as it is allowed to the former owner ID and not mine?

    In addition, is there advice on how to move from Final Cut Pro X (and other software) to another Mac if I happen to get another?

    Thank you


    Unless sellers are explicitly including transfers of software license, you cannot continue to use the software without eventually getting into trouble. Adobe CS apps can be installed on multiple machines, but they cannot be activated on two. If the 'included' software has already been activated by the previous owner, you won't be able to use it.

    The inclusion of the high-end systems used on applications should be a red flag: avoid sellers.

  • How can I change the owner of a history of Adobe project?


    I'm changing the "owner" of an Adobe Story project. I signed up for an Adobe Story Plus account through my business e-mail, and I want to transfer personal property of my scripts of my email to the business Edition. How can I do this?

    At the moment I just "shared" with my new email, but this means only I'm a co-author and do not have total control over my documents. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    Sorry, but the story doesn't have a function to change the owner of a shared project.

    In this case, you will need to manually export and import of each document from one account to another.

  • How can I change the owner when you give a laptop to a family member?

    I give my laptop running Windows 8 to a member of the family, so need to change the property to them.

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The best way to do this in Windows 8 is to do a "Reset PC" which restores the computer to the new brand terms, just as it came from the factory.  After that, it will be display "enter the name of the owner" basically ready for the 'first use' by the new owner.

  • How can I change the settings on my computer I have not need permission, when I am the admisnistrator

    OK, I'm the administrator on this computer, but when I want it, clean, System Restore, defrag download something on it, he said I don't have the right permission, also it will not hook up to our internet ipad but it works anywhere else... How to change these settings during his don't not let me, and also I can not update my computer it says there is an error


    You did changes to the computer before the show?

    Method 1
    The issue could be due to the settings of the user account on the computer. I suggest you to disable user account settings and check if the problem persists.

    Enable or disable the User Account Control

    Note: User Account Control (UAC) can help prevent your computer from unauthorized changes. It works by asking permission when a task requires administrative rights, such as installing software or changing settings affecting other users. We do not recommend disable user account control. If you turn it off, you must reactivate as soon as possible.

    Method 2
    I suggest that you enable built in check and account administrator if the problem persists.
    To activate the built-in Administrator account, follow these steps:
    a. click Startand type cmd in the Search boxof start.
    b. in the list of search results, right click Guest and then click run as administrator.
    c. When you are prompted by user account control, click continue.
    d. at the command prompt, type net user administrator / Active: Yesand then press ENTER.
    e. type net user administrator , , and then press ENTER.
    Note: Please replace the tag with passwords which you want to set for the administrator account.
    f. type exitand press ENTER.
    f. disconnect from the current user account.

    Method 3
    I suggest you to create the new user account to check whether the user account is the origin of the problem.

    Create a user account

    If everything works well in the new user account, then I suggest you to transfer data and settings to the fixed aid corrupt profile.

  • How can I change the programs that my computer runs at startup... as when I first cut it on all programs that just automaticlly opens

    When I cut on my computer it starts a program called frost wire and it freezes I want to remove where it starts automaticlly and just start up when I open


    FrostWire is a BitTorrent software or any bit torrent software can be dangerous to use that you can end up with a Malware infected computer.

    FrostWire forums:

    FrostWire FAQ;

    As your computer freezes because of this, I would like to download Malwarebytes anti-malware update and scan of Malware:

    You can manage through Windows Defender startup programs.

    But if you use McAfee, Norton, AVG and MSE, etc as an Anti Virus they disable Defender, which is the best thing for them to do.

    There are a couple of other ways to manage startup programs:

    How to use MSCONFIG in Windows Vista

    Here's how to use MSCONFIG in Windows Vista to disable some unnecessary programs that load automatically at startup. Disabling these programs will help your computer boot faster and crash less.

    Alternatively, you can use this free Autoruns program:

    This utility, which has a knowledge of auto-starting locations of any startup monitor, shows you what programs configured to run at system startup or login and that the entries in the order of processing windows. These programs include those in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other registry keys. You can configure Autoruns to show other locations, including Explorer shell, toolbar extensions, helper objects to the browser, Winlogon notifications, auto and many start-up services even more. Autoruns goes way beyond the MSConfig utility bundled with Windows Me and XP.

    Autoruns' hide signed Microsoft entries allows you to zoom in on images of automatic start of third parties who have been added to your system and it has support for looking at images of Autostart configured for other accounts configured on a system. A command-line equivalent that can display in format CSV, Autorunsc is also included in the download package.

    You may be surprised how many executables are launched automatically!

    And some programs under Tools > Options give you the choice to know if they start when Windows starts, or not.

    See you soon.
