How to change author in netbeans

If you need to change the name which netbeans sets using the auto comment tool(when you created the class or by typing /** and pressing Enter) you can do the following.(for Netbeans 7 see at the end of the post)

Figure 1 you might need to change the name at the "@author". So before change you will have something like this.
Figure 2 Select Tools --> Templates

Figure 3 Edit file from the editor.Click Open in Editor

Figure 4 Uncomment the user line and enter what you want there as the user=<what you want to appear>

Figure 5 Finally

In Netbeans 7 you can do the same by clicking the settings button in template manager and editing that as I told earlier. :)
