Hi, In Windows XP, if by "display name" you are referring to the username during login/logon, it can be replaced by going to Start, Control Panel, User Accounts, Change an Account, choose your account (last name), Change my Name, Provide New Name, follow all other on screen instructions. hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

How can I change my nick name in

Your nickname cannot be changed on Fixya. It seems that it's automatically generated. You can update your full name which is the name displayed across the website.

Just visit the My Profile page and scroll down the the My Account section and update your name. Press the "Save my information" button and your name will be changed.

Hope that helps!

How to change my username

Go to your yahoo messenger friends list. Click on messenger, then click on "my contact details", underneath the box in which you could enter your first, last and middle name is a box that says nickname. Enter your new nick, save it and you're done.

If users already added you to their messenger list and/or address book, your old name setting will continue to get displayed for them. If you want those users to see your new name also, ask them to remove you from their messenger list and/or address book and add you back with your new info

i think this will help u thanks

Nick name not display

Click on your Messenger avatar
Select 'Account info' and sign in
Scroll down to 'Manage my Yahoo alias' click link
Make your alias - maximum 6
Click 'close'
Go to top and sign out.

When going through the chat room procedure pause after hitting "join a room" as there will be drop-box on top of the next panel giving you the option to choose what name you wish to use in the chat session

About your sound problem, try to check your sound driver if it is ok outside of yahoo and if its not go to to get a codec.

I want to change my nickname at fixya ,why in editing option it is not possible ,i want to do it once.....plsease help me...i want to do it only once to some techy name

Nicknames can't be changed at all. I don't even think that accounts could be removed unless done manually in the database.

So nope, can't be done.
