    How do I change the password on my Mac-Forums account. Sadly, Mac-Forums rates = to HP in lacking obviousness!

    link at the top of every page, UserCP = User Control Panel

    It will be exactly the same place as every forum using any current version of the vBulletin forum software.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Thanks. I'd spent about 25 minutes looking around and clicking things but obviously missed that one!

    Regards

    So not going back to HP LOL?
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    There certainly is room to expand the abbreviation into words to make it more obvious.

    The menu item does have the word "User" in it. What else on the top menu refers to the user? Yes, the top menu is easy to miss for most new forum members but expanding "User CP" to "User Control Panel" won't make much difference.
