The following steps can be used to change Author in Git:

  • launch terminal.
  • run git commit --ammend --author="Author's name<email address>". This opens the vim editor to edit and save changes.
  • press esc on your keyboard to switch to command mode.
  • press: (colon) to open the prompt bar at the bottom of the vim editor.
  • type x after the colon and press enter.

This will save the changes made and exit the vim editor.
