Create User Friendly URL For MVP Profile Page At Microsoft Website

Recently, I was awarded MVP [ Microsoft Most Valuable Professional ] award in Windows Desktop Experience category by Microsoft. It is great pleasure for me to receive this award, as finally they have acknowledged my efforts towards windows and other Microsoft products.

Today I am going to share a simple but quite useful tip for all my fellow MVP’s out there on how can you create a user-friendly for your MVP profile. As by default the MVP Profile page  URL has a long sequence of code which is unique for every MVP.

For Example the URL from my mvp profile is

https://mvp.support.microsoft.com/profile=E16AB234-DB61-47B1-BCEB-05D0D95A6F6F 

and the user friendly URL I created for my mvp is

https://mvp.support.microsoft.com/profile/Abhishek.Bhatnagar

Both of the above URLs will work simultaneously even when you create the user friendly for your mvp profile, but as you can see the user friendly URL is easy to share with people.

Follow the procedure to know how to create a user friendly easy to remember URL for your mvp profile page

1. Go to https://mvp.support.microsoft.com and login with your live id associated with your mvp profile, by clicking the sign in button shown on the right top under MVP Sign In & Tools text as shown in the image below.

You can create the Alias MVP Profile page friendly URL as per your first and last name, once you are done click update to activate the friendly URL for your mvp profile page which you can share with other people.

I hope this way all the mvp out there can have a more meaningful user friendly URL for their profile page, with URL which is easy to remember and easy to share with friends and other people they meet.
