Change the display name that e-mail recipients see in Outlook.com

Hi all,
I have been using Hotmail.com for the longest time which turned over to Windows Live and then to Outlook.com etc.

The problem is that I don't want my full name being displayed to email recipents that I reply or compose messages to. The link below explains how to do it in the program for windows, Outlook. I want to do this in Outlook.com. Does anyone know how to change this?. Thanks.
