Summary:
The Accounts: Rename administrator account policy setting determines whether a different account name is associated with the security identifier (SID) for the administrator account. Because the administrator account exists on all Windows 10 for desktop editions (Home, Pro, Enterprise, and Education), renaming the account makes it slightly more difficult for attackers to guess this user name and password combination. Rename the Administrator account by specifying a value for the Accounts: Rename administrator account policy setting.
