im using windows live messenger 8.1 and whenever i try to change the display name, the next time i sign back in it has defaulted back to the same thing, "Robert". Is it getting this from my profile even though there is no "robert" anywhere to be found I tried playing with the settings in options like shared computer business etc. and cant seem to make it stick.

Re: display name will not change


Rob - do you get "Your display name could not be changed, please try again later." Did you select "remember me"

If so, the server has issues every now and then. It'll be fixed soon, just wait it out.

You should check

i dont see how having "remember me" turned on or off would effect the display name. It only effects your email address and status on the current computer.
