    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.

    Hi Ian,

    To change your sign-in screen name on Windows 10, follow the steps below:

    • Use the Windows key + I keyboard shortcut to open the Settings app.
    • Click Accounts.
    • Select Your email and accounts.

    • Hit the Manage my Microsoft Account link to open the web browser and load your profile.

    • In the main page, click the Edit name link.

    • Change your name and last name, and click Save.

    • Restart your computer.

    Note: It is important to know that following these steps, you will also be changing the name on your outlook.com account and other Microsoft services, as well as the account name that is connected with your Microsoft account.

    In line with this, you may also create a new account name on Windows 10, follow these steps:


    • Type user on the search bar; then, click User Accounts.
    • Click on change your account name option; then, change the name and check if it helps.
