I need to change the name of someone in my address book, how?

Why everything is so complex and involved? All I need is to change the name that is displayed with an e-mail address. The chap Protocol is dead, but not his wife. She doesn't want to see his name every time! I don't know even how to get the answer to this... I'm certainly not going to spend the rest of my life by reading reams of info just for a simple answer. Just send me an email with an answer short and simple someone, please.


Open your address book. Tools | Book addresses, or ctrl + shift + b

In your address book, select "all address books.

Search by name or address in your address book. There is an at the top right search box.

Look through what it finds. Choose the one that you need to change. Double click it to edit it. You will find that you have several similar entries. Now is the right time to remove those who have not really need. The collected addresses is, IMHO, a bad place to store useful Contacts.

Click 'OK' to save your changes.

    Hi all

    I can't understand this, I hope that this is a real simple thing to do. I need to change the name of the vCenter, like what's in the screenshots below, but using the powershell code


    can someone show me how it's done?

    See you soon!

    Depending on whether you have vCenter, Update Manager, and licenses executed on the same host server, it is not a simple operation.

    See for example KB1006843.

  • Need to change the name of the administrator under the folder of the user account

    I just got a new HP laptop with Windows Vista 64 SP1. My friend who got the laptop I use a nickname that I hate it when he set up the computer for which it was not supposed to do in the first place. I went to the section control panel user accounts control and changed the name of the administrator account. I have only the administrator account on my computer with the guest account. That part worked.

    My problem is that, under C:/Users / (username), it still shows that hated nickname. I want to change the name of this folder, but cannot understand how or if it's possible. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance

    As you have discovered, you cannot change a user account by simply changing the name. That will be a change cosmetic only and none of the files/folders real profile will be changed. Follow the instructions below to fix things to your liking and to implement correctly under Vista user accounts.

    1. create the new user account (named as desired) as a * standard * (not administrator) account and at least one additional account with administrative privileges. Call the extra account 'CompAdmin', 'Tech' or similar.

    2. Enter the new user account once if the profile files are created, and then disconnect and then connect to CompAdmin.

    3. go in Control Panel > system > advanced > user profile > settings

    4. you will see where you can copy user accounts. Copy the misnamed old account to the new name correctly there. Use her browse to select your new account (C:\Users\newaccount). If you don't want to copy all the settings, and then instead simply navigate using the old user, music Explorer Windows Documents, etc. and copy the data to the new user folders.

    5. connect to your new correctly named user account. When you are sure to have what you need, you can delete the misnamed control panel user account > accounts to users if you wish.

    General information about configuring users in Vista:

    You absolutely don't want to have only one user account. As XP and all the other modern operating systems, Vista is an OS multi-user with system built-in accounts such as administrator, by default, all users and guest. These accounts should be left alone because they are part of the structure of the operating system.

    In particular, you do not want one account user with administrative privileges on Vista because the administrator account integrated (normally only used in emergencies) is disabled by default. If you use as an administrator for your daily work, and this account is corrupt, things will be difficult. It is not impossible to activate the built-in administrator to rescue things, but it will take third-party tools and work outside the operating system.

    The user account that is for your daily work must be a Standard user, with the extra administrative user (call it something like 'CompAdmin' or 'Tech' or similar) only it for elevation purposes. If your normal user account is an administrator, having created "CompAdmin", connect to it and change your normal user account Standard. Then log on to your regular account.

    If you want to go directly to the desktop and ignore the Welcome screen with the icons of the user accounts, you can do this:

    Start Orb > Search box > type: netplwiz [Enter]
    Click continue (or provide an administrator password) when you are prompted by UAC

    Uncheck "users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Select a user account to connect automatically by clicking on the account you want to highlight and press OK. Enter the password for this user account (when it exists) when you are prompted. Leave blank if there is no password (null).

  • How to change the name of the ODI agent and port number

    I installed ODI standalone agent (11g) on a linux server.  We now realize that we need to change the name and port number of the agent.  Is it possible to change these or do we need to re - install odi agent?

    I know that I can change the name in the ODI, but I can't change the port number.  I would like everything to be consistent in all of our environments.  That's why we need to change the name of the agent and the port number.

    How do you start the agent? Which command you use to start?

    There are two ways, either by directly calling agent.bat and passing name agent and port don't start or you can run the sh/bat file created during installation (present in oracledi\agent\bin). The file name that is created should look like this (agent_localagent11g) where localagent11g is the name given during installation time and 'agent' is the prefix that was added by ODI.

    There is no configuration file to configure the port number and agent. Make sure that the port number and name you pass to agent.sh must match what is configured in odistudio.

    Agent.bat '-PORT = 20910 ""-NAME = localagent11g.

    Based on what? Condition? If Yes, have you tried to set the text for the label as an expression? If not based on the condition, you can also expose the VO to Java Impl and need a way to get the attribute and change its label.
