How to permanently change your display name in Zoom?

Here’s a question from Brenda:

My display name in the Zoom application is showing up wrong, seems was taken by default. I like to use the correct display name, but I do not know how to change it because I don’t see any options provided in the application. Can you guide me on how I can modify my Zoom name for all future Zoom meetings and chats, so i don’t need to re-type it every time that i am about to join a Zoom meeting?
