    This is probably a stupid question, but I've searched and searched to no avail. In threads like the "December Desktops" thread, I sometimes see some people who have their shortname in the menu bar up by the clock. Where is this setting? I cant find it anywhere in System Preferences. Any help? Sorry for the stupid, simple question. :eek:

    Thats part of fast switching options. You have to turn that on under your user accounts for that to be there.

    System preferences -> Accounts -> Login Options -> Enable Fast user switching. Personally i have mine set for icon and not short name.
