    Two accounts on my Mac, one is admin, one is standard. How do I delete the admin account and make the other account the main one?
    I'd also like to know how to change the name of the Mac. (Running Panther)

    Thanks:)

    You first need to make the non-admin account admin. You should then be able to delete the previous admin account. Are you talking about renaming the HD icon on the desktop?

    I think the OP wants to change the name that appears on startup "Xxxx Yyyy's Computer"
