    new update - name displayed in top right corner
    I just installed the latest software update and now my full name is being displayed in the top right-hand corner. The time was pushed over to the left and I don't like how it looks. How do I change it back?

    System Preferences

    'Accounts' or 'Users & Groups' depending on your version of OS X

    Click on the 'Login Options' bottom of the left side bar

    Click the lock at the bottom and enter your password

    Change 'Show Fast User Switching' to whatever you want.

    OS X 10.7.5

    I don't want to rearrange it, I'd prefer my name not be there at all. When I click it, the dropdown menu says "Login Window..." which takes me to the login screen, and "Users & Groups Preferences" which is also self explanatory. I don't need those options, and I don't like how the time is not in the corner anymore. Holding control doesn't seem to do anything. Thank you for the suggestion though.

    It's Control+Command(Apple). Both keys then click and drag. Bobtomay told you how to totally get rid of it if you want.

    I hadn't seen the other reply when I was typing my response. Thank you very much to everyone. My name is now gone and I am happy.

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
