How to Change the Username on Slideshare

By C.K. Adams

Slideshare offers a way to upload and share presentations and videos with the click of a button. With so many users on Slideshare, the website provides features for a public profile and gallery. However, when you sign up, pick a name you like, because Slideshare never allows you to change your username. Beside making a new account, the only part of your name you can change is your display name. Slideshare suggests changing your display name if you want to change your username, since that is what other users see on your profile.

Step 1

Visit Slideshare's website and click "Login" in the top right. Sign in with your username and password.

Step 2

Hover over your username in the upper right corner. A drop-down menu appears. Click "Personal Information".

Step 3

Enter in a new name to change your display name. Click "Save" when finished.

Step 4

Hover over your username in the upper right corner and click "My Public Profile" to see your name changed.
