    How can I change what Cortana calls me?


    Hello Microsoft!

    Yesterday my younger brother used my Surface Book and in the "Notebook" section of Cortana changed what Cortana called me it was user earlier, I never touched Cortana's settings. As he has done so now, can I change it? I have searched YouTube and have not found any solution to change my name a second time. Kindly help.

    Note: 1909 Windows 10 version

    Thanks!

    :)

    How can I change what Cortana calls me?

    I know a bunch of people have asked this, but unfortunately none of the articles I've read have helped. I somehow do not have the "About Me" section of the Cortana menu, and that seems to stop me from changing what she calls me? It makes me very uncomfortable.
