    Terminal window keeps popping up
    On an iMac, the "Terminal" windows keeps popping up. An incorrect user name keeps appearing at the beginning of the command line.

    Is there a way to change the user name that appears on the command line?

    Example:
    Last login: Wed Jan 31 12:09:12 on nnnnnnn
    usernames-imac:~ username$

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    Go to System Preferences > Users and Groups > right click on your user and select Advanced Options.

    The username is pulled from the "Account name" field.
