How do I change my username?


For some reason sourcetree keeps guessing my username. I need the whole email address to login but it only uses the part before the @. It is set correclty under options/general, so I have no idea where sourcetree gets my username from. I had the same problem on my Mac a couple of days ago and I was able to change the username, but I can't find it anywhere in SOurcetree for Windows... Where can I change my username?

If you have an account registered in Sourcetree then you need to change that in Tools/Options/Account, if it is the credentials used by Git, usually indicated by a separate popup dialog when making push/fetch/pull style remote requests, then you can go into the Windows Credential Manager and delete any 'git:' prefixed entries. Git should then prompt you again but then store the correct credentials.
