    I am setting up an iMac for my family and was trying to enable automatic login so that each user account could just click their username without entering a password, but it seems that you can only enable automatic login for one user. Is it possible to set this up for multiple accounts, perhaps some sort of workaround?

    How can you auto login all the accounts together? You don't need a password on your log in although they recommend it. You can however turn on Fast User Switching which will show the user name in the upper right hand part of the menu bar.

    If you just leave the password field blank when creating an account, then no password will be used for that account. Then, when you select the username in the login window, it will not ask for a password.

    Automatic login is just where your account logs in when you switch the mac on, without even having to click your user name.
