I have requested on another thread for my profile to be deleted and get no response!

https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Community-Discussion/Delete-a-community-member/td-p/11120

 

I changed everything in my profile but it's not saved as the threads still show my full name which I have removed.

I would like my profile removed. It's very uncool not to provide this ability, besides via your virtual assistant I cannot reach a person either. :(

Very dissapointed

The reason it shows your full name is because the Tech Community pulls your name directly from your Microsoft account, regardless of any changes you make to it on this site.

 

If you want to change your name in the Tech Community, you'll need to do so directly with these steps.

 

 

You would need to update your name here: https://account.microsoft.com/profile/edit-name

 

Then log back into the community using this link: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/plugins/common/feature/oauth2sso/sso_login_redirect

 

That will cause your name to update in the community.

 

I apologize for missing your removal request in the other thread. For clarification, we don't allow users to remove their own account due to accounts being tied to their Office 365 account.  I've removed your account.
