How do I delete an admin account on my computer and make another user the admin?
Make the other user an admin first, then log into that account and delete the original admin account.
How do I do that in 10.3.9?
It's been a while, but are you saying that those steps don't work? Sorry, I don't have Panther on anything here that I can get to. Where does it fail?
I don't see where it says to make another account an admin account...
There may be an earlier opportunity to do it, but once you have the new account set up, you should be able to see it System Preferences --> Accounts (Password Pane). There should be check box saying something like "Allow user to administer this computer." (I'm on Tiger, so things may be slightly different in Panther, but the option will be there somewhere.)
At least in Tiger, the "Accounts" panel has a lock you need to click to authenticate, and then you click the little '+' icon near the bottom left you click to add an account.
What does your Admin panel look like?
Found it. It was under 'Security'. Thanks
I'm glad you did. Sorry I couldn't have been of more direct help.
It's okay, 10.3 is old. It's on my Mac mini which I'm trying to clean out.
