I will assume you mean your Sniper Fury player name (not your username on these forums).

To change your player name (in the game):
See screen pic.
Click on 1.
Click on 2.
Edit accordingly.

Disclaimer
In the Android version of the game, a player's 'Google Play' username can overwrite the name set in the game - I do not know if this is the case for the Windows version of the game (or if your player profile is backed up to Facebook, etc).

I recently had a situation where I had to do an uninstall / reinstall of SF. Given all of the problems that players have had with lost progress I am usually hesitant to do this.

Once I completed the reinstall the game picked up my game progress (from my Google Play Games account settings) but it did not carry in my user name - - instead SF assigned me a Soldier_nnnnnn name. I could change this name (as detailed above in this thread) but I was not permitted to change it to my Google Play Games account name.

By disconnecting from my Google account then reconnecting again my user name was picked up from my Google Play Games account and now everything is back to what it was.

See screen pics for pathway.
