  1. I can’t change my name on Microsoft.com


    I made this account a long time ago and made my name a weird YouTube name and I’m trying to change it. I go to mircosoft.com, got to “Your info”, click on “edit name”, put in the desired name I choose and it says “The name you entered isn’t permitted. Please enter a different name.” I’ve put in like 10 different names of my liking and it says the same thing over and over. I’ve even tried my real name and it says it’s not permitted so I am very confused on why it doesn’t work. There’s also no way others would have those names so it’s not like it’s taken.

    :)

    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.

  3. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.

    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.

    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
