While your mouse is hovering the area, you will see the option Edit profile fields

Don't forget to click the button Update User to save the changes.

2) From the Front-End - Shortcodes

The WordPress Registration Form Plugin supports the option to edit user profiles using a shortcode.

The shortcode also supports all custom fields added using the plugin custom fields option.

To use this you can place the following shortcode [cmreg-edit-profile] on any page or post. This will only appear once the user is logged in.

The output will look like the following:

This shortcode also supports the requirement of many administrators to prevent user access to the dashboard.
