By default, when the Windows 10 operating system Is first Installed on a given computer, the registered owner Is listed as Windows User, and the organization name Is usually blank. Sometimes, the OS registers both names under Microsoft. If you've personalized your PC, you'd most likely want to change these, hence In this tutorial, I will show you how to change the registered owner and registered organization In Windows 10.
Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. Open the Run menu, enter winver and at the bottom, you will see the registered owner and (If applicable), the registered organization names respectively. In my case, both are listed as Microsoft as per the Image below.
The above example, Is the default names applied by Microsoft, when I performed a clean Installation of Windows. Some apps actually reference and use these names, thus It's good practice to change them to something suited to your computing environment.
Moreover, If you've purchased a second-hand PC, the previous owner(s) may have entered their details, hence another good reason to Implement the change. Whatever the case may be, I will demonstrate how to change both the registered owner and registered organization names by using the good old Windows Registry Editor. So without further delay, let's rip Into this tutorial.
Step One:To access the Windows Registry, open the Run menu, enter regedit and hit OK.
Step Two:The Windows Registry Editor will now open, so navigate to the following directory.
Make sure the CurrentVersion key Is selected and on the right pane, scroll down until you locate RegisteredOrganization and RegisteredOwner as shown below.
