    Quick question: I was just wondering if it was at all possible to change the order that the users appear in at the login screen?

    Mac OS X orders the usernames there alphabetically.

    You could probably hack it, but an easier way would be to make it so the account you want first starts with a letter below the other account(s).

    I don't know if this would work but maybe you could put spaces in front of the names so that they go first?

    Ex:
    _ _ Marcia
    _ Jan
    Cindy

    Maybe that would work. :)

    A space did the trick, thanks for the idea! Nobody else actually uses my computer, but I made another account and named it with my phone number in case I ever lost my laptop, they'd see my number when they booted up. Kind of a dumb idea, and it assumes the person who finds it has a conscience, but hey couldn't hurt right?
