    Ok, first day with this Imac, and 2nd stupid question for you guys.
    I have set up my user account, but need to add 2 more for my wife and daughter. I don't see where you do that. I tried the "accounts" area, but do not see anything that offers "add account".
    Can anyone tell me what to look for?
    Thank you,
    Dale.

    System Preferences>System Accounts> Then click the + sign on the left bottom under Login Options

    In the Accounts pref pane, there should be a lock in the bottom left corner. That lock icon should be unlocked. Right above it there are two buttons, a "+" and a "-". Click the "+" to add a new account. You can fill the account info on the right side of the window. :)

    Thanks, guys. Before I got the answer, I searched and searched, but couldn't find where it said "add user, or something similar. Who knew the little + sign was for that :eek:.
    It may take some time to get used to this machine, but so far, it's a fun learning curve.
    Dale.

    dont forget to enable fast switching when you setup those accounts..its a must IMO with multiple accounts on one Mac
