Description

Currently there are three options in the my_account_menu in the admin-bar. But two of these (the "user name" and the "edit my profile") links to the same path. I think the only use of the it is when the display-name (Name of User) is not equal to the username of the User (See Screenshots).

But to make the menu more compact and accurate, we can simply remove the display name as it is already seen in the heading of the menu and if there is a username mismatch then we can add it below the "edit my profile" link (See Screenshots).

Hi gauravmittal1995, thanks for the suggestion. Right now it shows a pretty effective "card" of information, of who you are logged in as. I don't think it's necessary to change the look of it for the purposes of compactness. It feels kind of empty and the avatar seems out of place when the name is omitted or simplified.

This was originally designed with a boatload of UX tests as well as looking at other services, so I'm not inclined to make any changes.
