Hey,

In Snow Leopard I've never seen my name in the upper right corner of the Desktop. Since installing Lion , its there. How can I get rid of ' Michel van der Veen ' ?

Thanks.

Or quicker, holding the Command key down, drag it off the menu bar with your mouse. Also works with any Apple menu extra.
