I'm trying to learn the terminal system and I really can't even get started unless I do one thing.

First off, I gave my laptop a new persona, a new user name "admin". Terminal however, still has my old user name which no longer exists on this O.S.

I was curious if anyone here could tell me how I can change the preferences of terminal to read the new user name of the computer? Anyone? Terminal is waiting for me.
