Hi all
I have a new WordPress install on my pc with a local host. So for the first time and during the installation I changed my Admin user ID to my name to make it simple. But now I realized that this was probably not a good move for security reasons. Now I want to change the admin user again but I have no idea how. Do I have to make a new install of WordPress and remove the current one? Can anyone please help.
Thanks in advanced

Hi there..
A new install will fix this issue, but if you don’t want to go through the whole process again you can try this plugin
