Hi. You should be logged in to your profile for you to change the nick and password. Make sure that your profile is set as administrator.

Need to change my first name spelling


1
Open your account settings. Log in to Facebook and click the Gear icon in the top-right corner of the page. Select "Account Settings".
  • To access this on the mobile app, click the menu button in the top-left corner and scroll down to Account Settings. Select General, and then tap Name.
  • 2
    Click on your name to open the name editor. You can enter a First, Middle, and Last name, as well as an Alternate name (such as a nickname or maiden name).
    • Your name can only be changed four times.
    • Facebook wants you to list your name as it appears on your credit card or ID.
    • You cannot use symbols, numbers, random capitalization, or punctuation.
    • Your middle name cannot be words or phrases.
    • Nicknames should be variations on your real name (Jim instead of James, Meg instead of Megan, etc.)[1]
  • 3
    Enter your real name. Facebook does not allow you to impersonate someone else, or create a page for a fictional character. Accounts found in violation of this will be forced to change the name.
    • If you want to create an account for an organization, business, or a pet, you will need to create a Facebook Page.
  • 4
    Enter your password. To change your name, you will need to enter your password into the box before you are allowed to save your changes.
  • 5
    Click Save Changes. Your new name will be saved, and the change will reflect on your Profile shortly. It can take up to 24 hours for a name change to be approved

This is a stupid website when it doesn't allow you to change your password


You can change your password, but visiting the "My Profile" page. Scroll down the My Account section and click the "Change" button next the password label.

Hope that helps!

Hello.

There is a hidden Administrator account that is created when your operating system is installed. Access that account and then reset your password.

1. Boot your computer and press F8 repeatedly
2. Access Safe Mode
3. Key in "Administrator" in Username, with no password.
4. Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts
5. Select the account you want to reset the password
6. Change the password

Hope this helps.

I can't get into the icq chatroom. it needs my register. How can I do the register? Where I do the register? Please kindly advise. Thanks, Judy


You'll have to register your name to a mod on ICQ.

1. Contact !ChanServ through a PM.
2. Type /join #ophelp to !ChanServ
3. You will receive a PM from WatchDog explaining how to register on ICQ:

<Watchdog> Greetings, due to the recent changes, kindly make sure you have a Registered nickname by Typing
<Watchdog> /msg nickserv Register Password Email
<Watchdog> An Authentication email will be sent to your entered email, authenticate your registration with the code that will be sent to you.
<Watchdog> Additional commands can be as following
<Watchdog> /msg nickserv identify Password (to identify as the owner of the nickname each time you login)
<Watchdog> /msg nickserv set hidemail on (to prevent users from finding your email through nickserv's info)
<Watchdog> /msg nickserv set enforce on (to prevent anyone else from using your nickname unless they identify with the correct password).

Hope this helps. :)

Is there any way to change my nickname on a fixya account. I have another name i would prefer to use. Thanks for the help


I asked the same question to Customer Support and they informed me you cannot change your nickname once you open your account. I was informed to create another account with the nickname of choice. Good Luck...

Unlock memory card


Password is the name of your memory card, so if you changed the name to your nickname or whatever that also acts as the password, although it doesn't say that at the time of doing it.

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.
