boots directly up to my desktop....
cool it worked...but it doesn't answer the essential question of how to getto the original computer password XXXXX I might need for any number ofother reasons...thanks for the help to date though, it isappreciated...best, bruce
I'm glad that worked. That means you never had a password XXX on your Macbook, when you go to install a application. You are prompted for the admin account if there is no password XXXXX applies in your case. You leave it blank.
If you wish to apply a password XXX can do so. However your PC will no longer boot straight to the desktop. Instead you will need to enter the password XXXXXX doing so.
To add a password XXXXX on the Apple logo top left.
choose System Preferences.
From the View menu choose Users & Groups.
Click the lock button if it appears locked; enter the administrator password. Which would be blank
Select your user whose password XXX want to change.
Click the Reset Password XXXXXX or the Change Password XXXXXX.
Enter a new password XX both the New Password XXX Verify fields, and add a Password XXXX if desired.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
