Windows 10 displays organization name as well as owner name to which it’s registered to in the About dialog. As you likely know, one can launch the About dialog by typing winver.exe in Start menu or taskbar search box or the Run command box.
If a user has not provided the organization name and owner name during the install or setup, Windows 10 displays the registered owner name as Windows User in the About dialog.
If you recently changed the organization or if Windows 10 is not showing your organization and your name in the About dialog, then you can change the current registered organization name and registered owner name.
But since there is no option under Control Panel or Settings to change registered owner and organization name, we need to either manually edit the Registry or use a third-party tool to change this information.
Complete the given below directions to change registered owner and organization name in Windows 10.

Jim Parnella says
I wanted to change the name of the computer that shows when I start up. I apparently double struck a key (R) and would like to correct that. It shows may name as Jim Parrnella with one extra R. The “Change Registered Owner And Organization Name In Windows 10” didn’t help me.
