    On my old MBP, my home folder (/Users/username) was just my first name, with a capital first letter. On my new MBP, it is firstnamelastname, all one word, all lower case. How can I change it?

    I tried this, but I still can't edit the name.

    What happened when you tried? More info is always better when seeking help.

    When I wanted to change my home folder name, that worked.

    What is not working? Give more information.

    Never mind, I figured it out. :) Didn't realize you had to log out after enabling root, then log back in as root. I thought enabling root made you root, like adding sudo to the front of everything you did. :D
