Modify User Information

Reader rating: 4 out of 10


When Microsoft Office is preinstalled on your PC, many times the name you see on the splash screen is "Default" or "Valued Computer User".

This How-To Article shows you how to change this information to display your name when Word (and all of the Office applications) starts up.

Modify User Information

1. Click the Tools menu and select "Options...".

2. Click the "User Information" tab.

3. In the "Name:" text box, enter your full name. (This will appear on all of the Office application's splash screens.)

4. In the "Initials:" text box, type your initials.

5. In the "Mailing address:" text box, enter your mailing address.

Note: None of this information is submitted to Microsoft; this is not registering your software. Information used such as your mailing address will be used when you create envelopes

6. Click OK.
