    I am having a bit of a problem here. I have 3 Admin accounts set up and the guest account. It seems the one account listed below the guest account and subsequent accounts created have no spotlight in the menu bar and you can't drag or drop anything. What is going on here?:confused:

    Ok here is what I discovered. When you are under the user accounts preference pane you can right click a user and select advanced options. The first line is User Id: XXX. You can enter 0 to make this account a superuser. Gives full root privilege, BUT I want all my other accounts to act just like my main account. When I changed one of these to superuser I got the spotlight back in the top right corner and I could drag and move files around. I just want to know if anybody else has some insight on what is going on here. I have only 2 accounts where I can do what I want. Any account created after that is sorta like a guest account.
