So, I got my first Mac, always been a PC guy. Long story short I messed up my user settings and was unable to gain administrator "root" to change some things. Anyways after researching I found out I could boot into Single user "superuser/root" by holding down Comand+S during boot, which gave me root access from the command line. From there all I did was type in "resetpassword" and was able to change without imputing the old password. My question is why even create a password in the first place if it's so easy to change? Maybe it makes sense to you guys, but coming from the PC platform it's kinda head scratching.
