If you don’t like the idea people being able to see your name when you email them, then you’ll need to create an email address that doesn’t feature your name first. The next thing you want to do is make sure that your name isn’t being shown at the top of the email after you send it.
An email client always gives people the chance to change the name that is going to be shown to the recipient. One thing that people forget is that the default Windows 10 email app is a unique thing, meaning even if you have your Hotmail or Gmail account altered so that it doesn’t show your name, the Windows 10 email app still might be showing it.
To make sure that your name isn’t being shown when you send emails from the Windows 10 email app that you get access to when you navigate to the Start menu > Email tile, then follow the guide below.
How to change how your name is displayed when you send emails using Windows 10 Email App
Open the Windows 10 email app by navigating to Start > Email tile and then click on the “Settings” gear icon at the bottom of the email application’s window.
Click on “Manage Accounts” at the top of the menu.
Choose the email that is the one you want a name change within.
Click on the “Change mailbox sync settings” link to get access to your options for syncing the account.
Under where it shows the “Send your messages using this name” heading, change the name within the box to the name you want to use.
Click on the “Done” button after you have made the name change.
The Windows 10 email client is now ready for you to send new emails with your new name. You can exit the Settings for the email app and start posting.
