Lesson 9. Share One Mac with Multiple Users > Set Permissions for Shared Files

Set Permissions for Shared Files

Every file on your Mac has “permission” settings. Some of these permissions you can change, if you like. For instance, you might want to send a memo to all users of this Mac, but you don't want them to be able to edit it. So select that document and give the others a permission of “Read only.” Or perhaps you don't want anyone to access your Sites folder; give it a permission of “No Access.” Maybe you want to share your Movies folder so another user can drop movie files into it; select the folder and change its permission to “Read & Write” or “Write only” (which means they can put files into your folder but can't take them out.)
