Deleting Sole Admin
I'm rather new to the mac, so I'm still getting used to it. I am wondering what 'managed' user means, and also wondering how to delete an admin account from the single user mode. I'm running 10.8.4 if that's helpful

If you are the sole user, use the admin account and do not worry about managed accounts yet.
You need an admin account anyway, to install or remove applications and do other fun stuff in Terminal.
And you probably cannot delete the only admin account from a managed account, as one needs to be logged into an admin account to delete other user accounts.

As I was playing around with it, I changed some things around and I made 2 admin accounts (the second one from the single user mode) and got rid of the original. I don't remember the password I had for the new admin account and was just wondering if it was possible to delete the account from the single user mode. I want to create another, but I would like to get rid of the existing one first. The only account I can access at the moment is a 'managed account' (And root of course) But would still like to get rid of the admin
