Beyond the Basics > Multiple Users & their Homes

Chapter 20. Multiple Users & their Homes

Mac OS X is specifically built for what’s called a multiple user environment; that is, Apple expects that more than one person is probably using the same machine, whether it’s in a school, office, or home.

If you are the only user who ever has or ever will use this computer, skip this chapter altogether. But are you really the only user? Perhaps your grandkids come over and want to use your Mac. Or maybe your husband uses your machine from time to time. Or sometimes you have relatives staying for a week who just want to use your Mac to get their email. In all of these cases, you can set up another user so no one else can access your personal letters, change the sound level, poke around in your financial files, put up a dorky picture as the Desktop background, or change any of your settings.
