    How disable display of alias/email address on right top of Office apps


    *092

    Hi

    I have just installed Office 365 on my new Windows 10 64 bits OS
    Now I notice that my alias and email adress are dispalyed on the top right of my Offcie apps ( at least Word)

    I cannot find a way yto disable this "feature". I absolutely do NOT want it to be displayed :this is private, and I use my PC at work, and surely do not want all bypassers to be able to take notice of my mail / alias

    Any way to achive that ???

    TIA to all experts here *Cool

    :)

  3. unable to make my email alias a primary - no primary link appears to the right of the alias

    There is no primary link next to my email alias to allow me to make it a primary as noted in the instructions. Any ideas? I am using Windows 10 Pro (not available to click in the drop down)

    • Under Account aliases, click/tap on the Make primary link to the right of an added email alias you want
      to be your primary alias.
    Note: The email alias at the top of the list without a Make primary link is your current primary alias.

  4. How disable display of alias/email address on right top of Office apps

    Windows 10 Mail App Shows Wrong Alias

    Notes on the suggested steps below.

    4 -- you get an error when attempting to add an account alias email address when the account already exists (with another alias)

    5 -- you can't delete the primary account/Microsoft Account email (even though it's using the wrong alias -- not your primary alias that you log into Windows with)

    Troubleshooting the Windows Store Apps reports no problem exists.
