Here I introduce you a VBA code to quickly insert windows username to a range of cells in Excel.

1. Press Alt + F11 keys to enable Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, click Insert > Module, then copy and paste below VBA code to the Module window.

VBA: Insert username.

Sub Usernameincell()
    Range("A1:D5").Value = Application.UserName
End Sub

2. Click Run button or F5 key to run the code, then the username is inserted into each cell in range A1: D5. See screenshot:
