Hello,
on a shared laptop, the user name is something like abe1234567, which has become the user name when using matlab / simulink.
Is it possible to change this user name to my name or initials to show up in the projects, for instance "modified by: jtg" instead of "modified by. abe1234567"?
Regards,
John

Hello Walter,
Not sure what you mean by model headers. Do you mean the external header code for the model?
Regards,
John

Try to start Matlab with a batch script:
SET "USERNAME=Test_Name"
"C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2022a\bin\matlab.exe"
What do you observe in Simulink?
There might be strange side-effects, e.g. if the license is bound to the user name.

Hello Jan,
yes, that worked for the Model Explorer issue. Thank you much for that!
And also for the heads up about simulink. I'll accept the answer to
close this topic and keep an eye open for "side-effects". Should something
show up, I will start a new thread and refer to this one.
Kind regards,
John
