When i change my display name then log out. My display name is resetted to "Tahmazis". I had this problem before. I changed my email adress and it fixed it. Is there another way to get rid of this problem .

Thanks Tahmazis

Hi Tahmazis,

Unfortunalty, the answer is no. You cannot change the display name once it has been chosen. A new email address is nessesary to do this.

I am not sure, but I had the same problem. An error message told me that the display name could not be changed.

possibly different sites handel it differantly. I was on a managed beta from connect, and participating in the forum from that beta. I tryed to change the display name on the forum. It gave an error message, unable to change display name.

Your display name can be changed using a differant profile or email address. But, I don't think that you can change the display name on the same profile or email. Once you chose it , it is permanant for that ID.

I'm having the same problem.

I've been having this problem for a week now. Everytime I Sign Out of the Windows Live Messenger it resets my Display Name to the First Name I use in my Windows Live Account (Hotmail). It is very frustrating having to change my display name everytime I SignIn to WL Messenger.

Hopefully there is a way to fix this.

F.Y.I.
If you delete your First Name in the Windows Live Account info, when you SignOn to Messenger, it will now display your email address.

I know a couple of people with the same problem. It's spreading! LOL

I hope they fix this problem pronto.

i had the above problem for 2 months now i tried every thing then i found the solution

go to your email and change the account information what you put in the first name will be your messenger display name

it seems microsoft changes the way display names appear so what is written in your registered account information in your email is your messenger display name

Edit your public profile using the "edit profile" button in options, a few below your display name.

Once you've changed your settings, logout of messenger and sign back in.

If that still doesn't work, reboot and sign in again.
