I recently needed to change my name in my Gmail account, it was embarrassing but after spending over half an hour, I still couldn’t figure out how
I remember it was pretty easy several years ago but the feature is now a little more hidden. I kept concentrating on the “General” tab and overlooked the other tabs.
Here is how to change your display name in Gmail, after wasting nearly an hour
- Login to your Gmail account
- Click on Options (the gear icon on the top right)
- Click on Settings
- Click on Accounts and Import
- The 3rd option: “Send mail as:” => click on “edit info” on the right and enter your new desired name.
