Simple method to change email address display name

I discoverd a simple way to change a display name for an email address, that i had not found on the website, or in chat.

 

Not sure if this has already been discovered and talked about...

but when i was searching for the info, i had gotten information that was not helpful.

 

The simple way to do it is:

 

1 Click on MAIL and open your mail account, so as to send an email to someone.

 

2 Click on " COMPOSE  "to open an email screen to type your email into, to send.

 

3 Before you type into the " TO "  form field.. look just above it,  at the  " FROM " line

 

4 See where it has your " From "  address?...

  .. well there is a downward arrow after the address

 

...click on that  down triangle arrow, to bring a drop down menu, into view

 

5 Choose to " EDIT NAMES "  that are  avaiable in that account.

 

6 Go ahead and EDIT the display name you want.. and SAVE

 

VOILA !  You have just changed the display name for the email address you chose to Edit.

D O N E !!!

 

Could have saved 8 hours of my time, had i known that way...

 

As i say it's probably been listed here.. i just couldn't find it when i needed it

 

Hope this helps someone who might need to use it..
