Changing the Username in Microsoft Word

Changing the Username in Microsoft Word

All those who use the word to write, edit and suggest changes must have to use the review feature at some point in time. Simply because it is so useful and to the point. It has always made my job easier when I had to suggest particular changes, particularly for long documents.

However, when multiple users are collaborating on a project and providing feedback. We can’t have HP or Acer or user123 suggesting changes. It will create confusion for the recipient to understand who actually has given the feedback if any further clarification is needed. Alternatively, if you are working for an organization and you are using your own Microsoft word account then it looks a little unprofessional to the client to find the different names in the comment section. Most of them, the client might never have heard of. What can we do? We can simply change the username to what we desire.

Let’s see how to do it.

  • Step 1: Open your Microsoft Word and go to options by clicking on the File tab.
