As an administrator on a Windows PC, you may have had control over setting up user accounts to have multiple people logging into the same computer. In this movie, you will know how to both setup new users on a Mac, as well as manage user settings, and even delete users who no longer need to have access to the Mac.
- [Voiceover] If you're switching from a Windows computer…where many people were able to login,…you may want to setup that same scenario…here on your Mac.…So, maybe multiple people need access to the Mac…and each of them should have their own account,…so they login with their own username and password.…Well, we're going to talk about…how we set those up here in the Mac…by going to our system preferences.…We'll click the Apple menu and from here,…select System Preferences.…Next, we'll go down to the Users & Groups icon,…give that a click, and from here,…you'll see the current user list.…
I'm logged in as myself, as an administrator.…Administrators have full privileges…and allows someone, like myself,…to create additional user accounts, delete accounts,…and adjust settings.…So, for my account, which is selected,…I can do things like change my password from here,…I can open up my Contacts Card.…You'll notice some of the options though…are not accessible right now,…and that's not until I unlock my screen…to make changes.…
