Making a User an Admin

Choose Apple menu, System Preferences, and click Accounts to see the accounts preferences.

If the preferences are locked, click the closed padlock button to unlock them; then type an admin name and password and click OK.

INTRODUCTION

Each Mac has at least one admin user—the first user identity created on your Mac is automatically an admin. You can make any other user an admin as well, so that user can control system preferences and make changes to the Mac's setup.


Click a username in the account list and then click the Password tab.

Click the Allow user to administer this computer check box.
