    Woe Is Me
    My Gmail account was screwed up, so I had to do a recover today. Finally got it working, but I keep getting this message on my desk top and the calendar starts bouncing. Can someone tell me what this means? Do I need to reset something on my Mac if I changed my password?

    By changing your password in mail it may have kept your old one in Keychain.

    I just went in and changed it, maybe that'll do the trick.

    Darn, just got that message again. Can you route me to where I need to change my password in my chain?

    I don't see key folders under my name. Where's the home folder?

    Specs:
    21" iMac * 2.8 Ghz Intel Core i7 * 16GB 1333 Mhz DDR3 * 1TB HD *AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB
    The home folder is the one that's created when you create your account. So your home folder is billhower. All of your documents and settings are kept here, quite separated from any other users' stuff. Each time a user account is created, a new home folder is created for that user's files and preferences. Often when someone is writing out a file path, they'll use ~ (tilde) in place of the home folder like this:

    ~/library/keychains/login.keychain.

    In your case, ~ represents billhower, your home folder. This is to distinguish from the system Library folder that's in Macintosh HD. In that case, it would be written out as Macintosh HD/library/keychains (or what have you).

    However, it will probably be easier for you if you simply type "Keychain Access" in the Spotlight search at the far right in your top menu bar. (It looks like a little magnifying glass.) In fact, if you just start typing it in Spotlight, it will instantly appear in the list of results. Just click on it when it comes up in the list.

    Hint: You can automatically bring up the Spotlight search box by pressing Command-Spacebar. Press Command-Spacebar again to hide the search box.
