How can I update this information, I believe it needs to be done in the registry. The bit that I have redded out shows my Microsoft account email address and not my name like it normally does. Also for the Org. it shows org.name (this one I want to remove completely).

TIA

A fast way without actually editing the Registry directly is to use this app:


It works in Windows 10 *AND* Windows 11.

My normal.

The app opens to the OEM Info tab by default on 8 / 10 / 11.

The second tab Extra Options (third, if you include the disabled XP tab) where you change that winver info:

After clicking Save New Information, you see this:

if you want to do it manually, since the app works across 8 / 10 / 11, this tutorial from TenForums (10F) should also work.
