The first thing to do is run the Deactivation executable that you will find in your MATLAB installation directory.
Then, change your username on the computer, and log in to the new user (or create a new username and log in to it.)
Then run the Activation executable that you will find in your MATLAB installation directory.
I am not sure at the moment whether this will be considered to "use up" one of the yearly transfers that are permitted.
Note: if you have a Standard (commercial) or Educational license (but not Student or Home license) then you might not strictly need to deactivate before activating with the new name.
