Change my Display Name on the Forum

Is there any way to change my forum display name? I can't seem to find a way to do it. I would even delete my account and start over.

Hi @AnalogIT ,

I'm afraid it's not supported to modify your username in this forum currently.

You could only modify your username when you creating the account.

Here's a doc in details for your reference:

Hey @AnalogIT, there doesn't seem to be a way to change the user name that I can see. Deleting your account and restarting might be the only way. 

 

Pinging @Anonymous to confirm, just in case.

So I made a typo on my username when I was setting up my account. So I guess there's not room for human errors....

Same. Somehow the 'n' at the end got lost on the way and now I'll forever be reminded that I didn't check my username before clicking "next".

How do I delete my account @wyotim. I'm looking at updating my username. Is there a way to do that 2 years later. I can delete my account and start over if needed. I just have to change my username. I didn't know that I'd be stuck with it, if I would have I would have put some more thought into it.

Any updates on this?

 

I  originally registered with my O365 work email and don't remember selecting a username 😟

It seems that changing display name is just beyond the ability of a ragtag bunch of indie developers like Microsoft.
