    i have snow leopard 10.6.6 and i saw someone with accounts in their menu bar. what i mean is they could click on the menu bar item and they could choose an account and login to it without having to go apple>logout. how do you do this?

    Its great to use if you share your Mac with other people. If you need to leave your mac doing a long task just switch to another user and your account stayes active but you need the password to get back in.
