Change OneDrive organization name

Sometimes, the name of the organization in OneDrive is no longer the one you want (change of company name, takeover / merger, no change following a test phase, etc.). This name appears in several places:

  • on OneDrive icon next to clock
  • at the top of the files list
  • in Windows Explorer
  • in Office 365 web interfaces
Company Name in OneDrive icon
Company Name in OneDrive icon
Company Name in OneDrive app
Company Name in OneDrive app
Company Name in OneDrive Windows Explorer
Company Name in OneDrive Windows Explorer

To modify this name, you need to modify the organization name in the Office 36/Microsoft 365 tenant settings.

Note: if PCs already use OneDrive, they will keep the old name. You will have to completely stop synchronization and put it back on to see the new name.

To modify the name, go to https://admin.microsoft.com/AdminPortal/Home#/companyprofile. If there is any mandatory fields blank, (address, technical contact), you have to fill them before validate.
