After the 10.7.5 update to Lion, I'm getting my name to appear in the menu bar. I don't particularly like it there. Any way to remove it?
Go to System Preferences -> Users & Groups
At the bottom of the user list click the 'Login Options' item and then make sure 'Show fast user switching menu as ...' is unchecked.
That'll get rid of fast user switching from the menu bar for you.
Have you changed it under Users & Groups preference pane after the update?
Once you select Login Options in the lower left, choose icon or short name or deselect this item entirely to remove the user from the menu bar.
