Are you talking about MS Word?
What is your MS Word version?

Change the author name for documents - Word

Many thanks for that Megahertzo7, but my query was why an unknown person had been given as the author of a document I had created. My Word version is 2010.

Did you see what is on the Word settings?

Click File > Options >General

Under Personalize your copy of Microsoft Office, type a new name in the User name box.

Megahertz07, Thanks again for your trouble, but it seems that I have failed to express my concern clearly. ie. why has an unknown name appeared as an author of a document I have created.

Did you created on your computer?
Was it created from a template or edited from an already existing document?
Did you try to create a new doc and see witch name is on it?
