  • Double click :- User Accounts applet.
  • Under the "Or pick an account to change” heading :- click your user account name.
  • Click :- Change my name option.

If you want to change the company name that is displayed in the Office programs, then follow these steps:
  • Click Start > click Run > type regedit > click OK.
  • Try to locate and select the following key :
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\< GUID>
  • where <GUID> is the Product Code for the version of Office that is installed.
  • Double-click RegCompany in the Name column.
  • Change the text in the Value data box, click OK.
  • Locate and select the following key:
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Common\UserInfo
  • On the Edit menu, click Rename.
  • Type OldUserInfo, and then press ENTER.
  • On the Registry menu, click Exit.

Note - If you are unable to locate the key, follow this -
  • locate and select the following key : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Installer/Userdata/S-1-5-18/Products/< GUID>/InstallProperties where <GUID> is the product code for the version of Office that is installed
  • In the Name column, double-click RegCompany.
  • Change the text in the Value data box, and then click OK.

  1. Run the Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE).
  2. Open the key - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT\ CurrentVersion.
  3. To change the values of the RegisteredOrganization, RegisteredOwner, or ProductId, simply double-click on them.

Note: This will only change the registered user information for Windows, not for the applications on your system. These steps applies to Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista
