My Account allows you to edit your own membership account information. You may also edit information for other user accounts via the View Members area of the Control Panel.
There are a number of areas within the My Account section:
Edit Your Profile¶
This page allows you to change the information that is stored in the main profile fields such as Birthday, URL, Location, etc. This page also contains any Custom Profile Fields you may have created.
Here you can set the signature, which can optionally be displayed with channel entries, comments, and forum posts. You may style the signature content as you wish.
You may select an avatar to associate with your member account. You may choose from among the default avatars or you may upload your own if that ability is enabled under Members ‣ Membership Preferences.
Edit Your Photo¶
If the ability to upload Member Photos is enabled at Admin ‣ Membership Preferences, this is where you can upload a photo to be displayed in your member profile area.
You may specify the email address associated with the account as well as preferences related to receiving email. If you are not logged in with a SuperAdmin account, you will need to submit the password associated with the account in order to update these settings. The password is not required when the person editing is a SuperAdmin account.
Username and Password¶
Both the Username and Screen Name for the account can be changed. In addition, the password can be changed if desired. If you are not logged in with a SuperAdmin account, you will need to submit the password associated with the account in order to update these settings.

To specify default server settings, go to Admin ‣ Localization Settings.

Control Panel Theme¶
Each user may independently choose which “theme” they desire to use when viewing the Control Panel. This page allows them to set that preference from among the available themes.

Here you can set some administrative options for a given user, like the Member Group they belong to as well as whether the user will appear in the Publish page “Multi-Author list”.
