    Open Settings > Messages on your Mac and change it in there. It should be similar to what’s on iPhone.

    From the Messages app, open the Messages menu followed by Preferences.


    In the iMessage tab, there's a "Start new conversations from" field at the bottom. After you change it for your phone number, it will send them as from your phone number.

    Works great. I use it from my iMac and Macbook Pro daily.
