  My company recently started using Office 365 for e-mail provider. Unfortunately the IT person spelled my display name wrong. When I brought it to his attention, I was told "no big deal, you can just go into your account and edit your display name yourself". Not only is he an idiot, but he is also ill-informed. After going thru the maze, which is Office 365 help instructions, I surmised that everything except display name and job title can be edited. Both these items are set by administration, and cannot be changed by user.

I have administrative priveliges on my computer, I woulod  be indebted to someone who could provide me with a walkthrough on how to edit my display name for my Office 365 e-mail account.Thanking you in advance.

I guess this is what you want to do?


If so, you need to be an Office 365 Admin in order to do that. So ask your IT tech to do the changes :)
