Archiving iOS app in VSWin and getting a path, file name too long error

I am trying to create an archive (ipa file) for Apple store submission and keep getting this error that the path or file name is too long. I can't easily change out my windows sign in folder directory nor my local app data folder. What is the workaround for this? Silly that this is even an issue in 2020 with Windows 10.
