    Is it possible to change your main username in OSX? Like when you open Finder and it lists Desktop, Applications, Music, etc. and the name you choose. I seem to recall that it said it can't be changed when I was setting it up, but I was rushing through everything b/c I wanted to use my new Mac. Thanks!

    It can be done, but Apple highly discourages it. Here is their 40-step guide.
