  • Hi,

    When you edit the document or add any comments, please go to File > InfoAccount, click Sign out to sign out your wifi's account, then Sign in with your account in Word instead.

    After that, please check the display name in the right-top corner of Word app, confirm if your account is displayed there:

    Hope it helps.
