    Admin. Acc't trouble - HELP!
    Hi Guys

    Please help this aging, non-tech boomer. Iím running iMac with OS-X, v.10.5.8. When I first got it, I set up my admin. account without a password (just hit ďreturnĒ). When I installed PhotoShop Elements, I found I didnít have access to all the features (different brushes, etc.). On a hunch, I set up another admin. accít but this one with a password and put PSE in the new accít. There, it worked just fine, but now I have to work from one account then the other and transfer files from the account with PSE to the account with the printer. For Xmas, I got a new version of PSE and would like to get this straightened out before I load it. Any suggestions on the best way to rectify this situation would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Thanks TONS

    You can manage passwords for your accounts using the Account icon in System Preferences. Seems to me that all you need to do is set a password on the original account, remove PSE from the newer account, delete the newer account and install PSE.
