Hello,

 

Don’t believe there is a shortcut for this. You need to go into your email settings and change it there. This is the same place you were at when setting up your email to begin with unless you used the automatic setup in Outlook. You’ll find your account setting under the file tab in the ribbons I believe under info

You can do this in your email account settings:

 

  1. Open Outlook backstage (ALT-F)
  2. Focus is on the “Info” category, navigate into the options with TAB and SHIFT-TAB
  3. Focus on and activate “Account Settings”
  4. This opens a drop-down list. Within the drop-down list, activate “Account Settings”

 

This opens the Account Settings dialog.

  1. Within the dialog, navigate with TAB and SHIFT-TAB until focus is on the list of email accounts
  2. Use UP and DOWN ARROW to select the account you’d like to edit
  3. Press SHIFT-TAB until you locate the “Change” button and activate it with SPACEBAR

 

This opens the settings dialog for the selected email account

  1. Locate and activate the “More Settings” button on this dialog
  2. This opens the “Internet Email Settings” dialog
  3. the first property sheet in the dialog is the “General” property sheet.
  4. The first control of the “General” property sheet is an edit field through which you can change the name of your email account
  5. Input your name and save the changes with the OK button
  6. Save the changes in the individual email account settings
  7. Activate the “Close” button of the Account settings

 

Close Outlook backstage and you’re done! The text you specified will now appear in the From field when you send email.
