Can I change user name in MS Office?

  kjrider 17:24 22 Jul 2009

Hi there

I want to sell my old PC, but it has my name as the user in the MS Office XP suite.

Is it possible to delete or change the name?

Otherwise I will need to reinstall office.

I am giving the Office XP discs with my old PC.

If you only want to change the user name in Office XP (2002) then do the following:

Open Word
1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
2. Click the User Information tab.
3. Type the user name information in the Name box.
4. Click OK.

This will change the name for all the Office applications.

If you have had other sensitive files on the PC then wiping it may the better option.
