    I'm new to OSX

    I want to change my Account Name (under Advanced Options for Users, NOT my User Name). Will I have to change the Home Directory to match my new name?

    I'm scared it might cause problems if I change the folder name to match my new account name.

    If there is only 1 account on this machine, that's the administrator account. A Usr folder created under this account (whatever name u gave it) cannot be changed unless there is some hack-ware out there that am not aware of.

    U can always re-install from scratch though. :)
