    How do I change my nickname?
    I am in no way new to Mac but I have not the slightest idea on how to change this I have checked everywhere. The Nickname I chose is xam for some reason I just want to change it to "Max"

    First off...do NOT just rename the folder. All heck will ensue.
    It is possible to change your short name but I don't have the link handy. (anyone?)
    It might be easier just to create a new user with the short name you want and copy files to the new user.
