Sure!

I recommend you sign-out from your console before you start the process, then sign-in 5-10 minutes after you changed the name.


1) Go to account.live.com
2) Click "edit display name"
3) Change the name to whatever you want!
4) Click "Save"

It may take some time for the changes to properly come through to the console.

I already knew about that. What I would actually like is to turn the display name off. I don't understand why I need to be identified twice on the dashboard.

^ Yeah, I don't like this either and assume it's there so the artificial intelligence can say "Welcome ******"
