This is a slight issue, not a big one, but really annoying me. When I installed Lion, my user name (which is my full name) is displayed to the very right of the menu bar, and I can't figure out how to get it out of there. Anyone know how to get it out of there?

Two ways:
1. Hold command and drag it out of there.
2. Go to User and Groups>Login Options in prefs and uncheck the box to have fast switching menu gone.

Perfect, thanks for the help.
I'm sure you probably noticed that you can change it to be just an icon instead. I like having the fast switch, but I too hated my full name being displayed. It's much nicer with just the icon.
