  1. Child account name changed to my name


    All seemed fine for a few days, her name was listed. But recently there are two accounts named Mike magee. Hence why I added dad to it as a work around.

    When I 1st set up for account it is important to note that I made the selection to sign in to her Microsoft account using my Microsoft log in so I didn't have to create a separate one for her but that wasn't a problem at 1st but it seems to be now


    When I log in I can see her account info but I can't change her name however I can change my name, does anybody know how to make this work

    :)

    If you desire a name change please do the following:

    • Ask yourself if you really need a name change.
    • Make sure you have a good reason.
    • Know what you want your new name to be before you request a name change.
    • Send Urlyin a PM containing a decent explanation of your reason as well as your desired name.

    Query about changing the User Accounts name

    Hi Jerry,

    Perform the steps mentioned below to change the user account name.

    • Sign in to the Your info page on the Microsoft account website.

    • Under your name, select Edit name.
      If there’s no name listed yet, select Add name.
    • Edit or add the name you want, then choose Save.
      Your Microsoft account name will start to appear or change everywhere you use it.

    Please revert if you still cannot change the user account name.

    Thank you.
