Hello, So I just got my new Macbook pro 13. and I love it, its so easy to use and amazing. but I have a question, is there anyway to change my account, I mean when you boot up your mac for the first time, it asks you to put a new account info, and I put it but now I want to change the name.

* Sorry for my bad english.
QUOTE Thanks

If you're referring to changing the your computer account name, then click on the apple at the top left corner < system preference < under "system" click on "accounts"... there you can add and edit your accounts

You can't change the name by conventional means.

In Mac OS X, how do I rename my OS X account? - Knowledge Base

Answers your question fully I hope!
