In Office 2013, you can save your documents to the cloud using Microsoft’s SkyDrive cloud service. You get a decent amount of free space and you can access your files via Mac, Windows, the Internet, or smartphone if you saves your files there. I have tested it out by using my SkyDrive account and it works fairly well.
The only odd issue I noticed was that when I went to save a file in any of my Office programs, the SkyDrive account was always listed as Someone’s SkyDrive, which was kind of annoying.
If that annoys you also and you’re not seeing your name, then it means your SkyDrive account profile does not have your name info entered yet. You can fix this by going to SkyDrive.com and logging in. Once you do that, click on your email address at the top right and click on Edit profile.
If you haven’t add a name to your account yet, you will see a notice up at the top with a link to Add your name.
Go ahead and type in your name and then click OK.
Now when you go to save a file in Office 2013, you will see it says your name rather than Someone’s SkyDrive account.
So there’s a simple tip for fixing a small nuisance, but something that was really bothering me! If you are having trouble with office updating your name even after adding the name to your SkyDrive account, you can try a few things:
1. Restart your computer
2. Remove the Microsoft account from Windows 8 and use a local account. Then switch back to the Microsoft account.
3. Switch to a different user in Office 2013 and then switch back to the current user
