Lesson 3. User Accounts > Creating and Editing User Accounts

Creating and Editing User Accounts

Both administrator and standard users use Accounts preferences to manage user accounts. Although standard users can change their own account information, such as the login password, only administrator users can add or delete user accounts. Throughout this lesson, we assume that you are initially logged in as an administrator using an account named Apple Admin. If you prefer to continue using your existing account, that's fine, as long as it's an administrator account. Whenever the Apple Admin account is discussed in the book, substitute your administrator account instead.

To create a new account, click the Add User (+) button. You then provide a long name, a short name, a password, and an optional password hint for the user.
