Hi Folks
New to posting on this forum but often drop in for a read. I need some help.
To quote an article I read about OS X regarding how family friendly it is...." Save paper and sanity by granting or limiting printer access."
I've got seperate mangaged accounts set up for the kids but I can't see how to stop them using the printer.
Any help very gratefully received!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi brush2805, if you bring up System Preferences by clicking on the blue apple up to the top left, and select Accounts from the System section in the window that appears, now click on the user accounts listed in the pane to the left, then click on the Parental Controls button:

Finder.app & System>Configure....

This allows you to set the limitations here. The user acct needs to be a 'Managed' account for it to really be effective, also it might be wise to password protect your 'Admin' acct.

If your acct is already password protected then click on the padlock in Accounts, enter your user name and password and then you can modify the settings there.

Thanks Pulse, but am I still missing something?
I've already got all the managed accounts set up and I've chosen which applications each user can access but what about printing?
For example kids have access to the internet, word, powerpoint etc but how do I stop them printing from these applications?

Go into each Managed Account and bring up the System Prefs, then click the Print & Fax icon and remove any printer which has been added.

Thanks for your advice again Pulse, but if I remove the printer in any single account it disappears from all accounts. Am I doing something wrong?

The article I took that quote from is here

Do apple know their own software?
