The best way is to delete the current account.

Create a new account by planning your wanted user name.

That's because there is none. Once a user name is accepted, it can't be changed.

@mncraftmod 

Just to clarify.  You cannot "change" your  Community username once it has been created.

In order to create a new username, you will need to create a new Community account. (use a different email address).

If you want to sync/coordinate/link your Roku devices to this new username.account, perform a factory reset on your Roku devices and then use the new email address when you setup/activate the Roku device.

If you do not mind having a different Community account than the one you originally used when you initially set up your Roku device(s), then you can just leave as is. (keep Roku devices linked to original account, and use your new account/username for communications in the Community forum).

@s0780348 there's no such setting. You can't change your user name on the Community.

That link takes me to a page that states "Access Denied"  Then it states I don't have sufficient privileges for this resource or it's parent to perform this action.

I've looked everywhere on the Roku community website for a way to delete my account, but I can't find anything. Searches for "delete Roku Community account" only shows results for deleting my Roku account, not the Roku community account. I don't want to change the email that I used to set up the account either.

Any help you can provide on how to delete my Roku Community account would be appreciated.

Thanks

@Anonymous I don't know which link you are referring to. There is a link in your User Account settings that allows deleting your community account. Click the avatar for your name at the top right of the page and select My settings. It opens on the page allowing you to change your email address, but there's another option labeled Close Account. If you click that selection and then click the Close account button, your community account is deleted and you are logged out. Naturally I can't test that function, as I don't want to delete my account.

@atc98092This is the link that I was referring to and was posted a few times that takes me the page stating access denied: https://community.roku.com/t5/Community-discussions/How-do-I-change-my-username/m-p/850989#M38980 /go.

Thanks for the information, I found it and will delete my account, but I will be back with a different username, one that I'm not going to make a mistake in selecting this time. I apologize for not finding how to do it on my own, I was following the advice of someone that told another member to go into subscriptions and notifications. I probably would have found it eventually if I hadn't had to leave the house because of having two medical appointments today. I only am just now seeing the email notification of your response

I thank you for your guidance.
