Customer Question
I was given this...

I was given this apple mini 6/7 years ago for christmas.,and have forgotten my password. My daughter set it up for me.

Technician's Assistant: When did you last change your password ***** Apple ID?

I never have set up a new password. That what I want to do now.

Technician's Assistant: Did you try resetting through Apple's online account reset tool?

No how do Ido that?

Technician's Assistant: The Mac Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

Will that change my user name also?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
