Change author name and initials in Word

A while back, a user called in, asking me how she could change the name and initials that Word used when filling in Author and when showing who had made a comment. Not having had to do that for some time, I quickly researched it, finding it was simple enough to do. In order to avoid having to research it in the future, here’s how:

  • Go to “File”, and click “Options”
  • Under “General”, change the “User name” and “Initials” fields
