    Hi,
    My cousin is coming over to stay with us for a couple of weeks, and I wanted to create a seperate user account for him, so he does not mess up my settings.

    I created an account with his name and I just had a couple of questions

    1)If he changes the mouse and trackpad settings under his account, will that change the settings for me?-I am really crazy about how fast my trackpad has to be, so I don't want him to be messing around my trackpad speed from his user account.

    2)Also, when he is gone-after I delete his account by hitting the minus button in the user account, where are all his files and stuffed stored?. In other words, how do I make sure EVERYTHING is gone when I delete his account and back to the way it was-Just with my account-no other stuff.

    Thanks

    1. No, it will only affect his account
    2. When you delete the account you'll be given the option to keep the files, delete them or store them in a disk image.

    Make sure you make him a standard user and not an admin.
