Deleting accounts.....
deleting accounts where? on your Mac? on this website?

on this site it should be easy.

On your mac, it's quite easy.
1. create a new account.
- Applemenu>SystemPreferences>Accounts (or "users" depending on your version)

2. log in to it
3. go back to the same Accounts settings, click your old account, and delete it.


if perhaps you're trying to delete ALL accounts and reset your Mac to "as new", that's a bit more complex.

@VAMountaineer

Our forum members can not delete their own account, it has to be done by an Administrator.
