Incorrect name showing in Microsoft Office

Ever had someone come to you and say that their Microsoft Office applications always documents the author of their Word documents as someone else, or as a department. Or that when adding comments in Excel, it displays again, as someone else, or as a department, rather than your name. Annoying isn’t it, and fixing it isn’t so obvious! Luckily however it’s a simple fix.

Open Excel or Word: Go to: File > Options > General > ‘Personalize your copy of Microsoft Office’ User name

And type in your name!

DONE! šŸ˜€
