wrong name showing in Excel cell note

Hi techs,
I just configured and deployed a new laptop for an end user which included Excel.  When she tries to make a comment in the cell, my name appears in the yellow box, instead of her name, even though she's logged in as her.
Any assistance is appreciated.
Thank you,

Go to file then options then on the general see the user name and change that to her name and then it will work

Here's how to fix it...Not sure how it happened in the first place though.


There's an option in my version of Excel (2013) to "always use this name" that may be checked and causing it to use your profile.
