* Your Windows build number: (Type `ver` at a Windows Command Prompt)
  Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.17134.523]
* What you're doing and what's happening: (Copy&paste the full set of _specific_ command-line steps necessary to reproduce the behavior, and their output. Include screen shots if that helps demonstrate the problem.)

1. Open an elevated command prompt
2. Type `kali --default-user root`
3. Type `kali` to start instance

* What's wrong / what should be happening instead:
  Instance should start with `root` as the default user but the instance starts with the original default user.
