I am new to apple, just purchased an iMac off craigslist, and have a personalization question. I was able to change the user name and all that info just fine but when my computer first turns on and I am prompted to log in the previous owner has a text below the apple icon that I would like to change. Right now it says "Daves ********** iMac" well my name is not Dave and I don't care to have that on there every time i go to log in. I have done a lot of searching and found where I can "change login text" but that is for one of the texts, not the one I am trying to figure out.. here is a sample picture, the text I have circled in red is the text I am trying to change, the text saying macbook pro is the only text I have successfully changed. (This is just a picture I got off the inter-web, not my actual login)
I am trying to upgrade to Yosemite, but somewhere along many passwords, I can't remember my administrator one. The online q&a's were a bit over my head as well.. is there a simpler way to get it changed?
When logging in with my password there is some user created text above the dialogue box. I created this text in Tiger but can't remember where or how. It was deep in the root, and I know Leopard is somewhat different than Tiger when it comes to these functions.
well i guess like most people i like to customize my mac. so i was wondering how i could change the color of my menu bar to black and have the text (the apple and the file,edit ect) to white. i have custom icons and docks but this has eluded me. i have tried to change the bar to transparent and have the wallpaper behind it be the color i want but that doesn't help change the color of the text and i doubt its the best solution.
Lets say I'm writing a search into text field on google. I then want add some previously written text from elsewhere. So I find the text and highligh it and copy. Then I return to google, right click to paste and then the previous text in the google text field is highlighted.h
I would like to change the pronunciation of specific words that my mac reads to me, however, there does not seem to be a way to do this. Tutorials online discuss changing a setting in the VoiceOver Utility, but unfortunately this only effects voice over and not text-to-speech.
Its possible to set up a keyboard shortcut for iwork that will change the color of my text as I'm typing? I had a setup back on windows office using macros that worked quite well but going back to office is obviously not an option.
So there was a power outage in my house while I was using my iMac, so it switched off. Now that I have power, when I try to turn my iMac on, nothing happens. I've made sure it's plugged in properly, and still no luck. What's wrong with it? Do i need to take it to an Apple store?
My MacBook Pro is in Chinese as the default language. And I've changed it into English. Then everything has changed except the log in window. The buttons are still in Chinese. And how can I change this window into English?
I'm using iPhoto 8.0.2 and want to upload to Flickr, but the login data are incorrect in iPhoto, and I see no way of changing the info.Clicking "Flickr" just shows a message "Login failed - The login details or auth token passed were invalid." and no way to change anything. Same happens if I choose "Flickr" from the menu under "share".
I have multiple screens on my Mac Pro. A normal screen, a projector and a USB-to-DVI converter.When I log in the login screen appears on either the projector or the converter screens. Not on the normal screen. I need to drag the cables out for the login to enter on the normal screen. The normal screen is set to the primary screen so thats not the problem.
I changed the language on my keyboard from english to spanish and now when i put in my password i cant login. Can i reset the language without logging on, back to an English keyboard? Is there a way to see my text as i tyipe so i know where my password is messing up?
When I first setup my OSX laptop, my filevault and user login password were the same. At bootup, I only had to login once (with my username and password).I recently changed my OSX password but my filevault / disk encryption password was not changed. Now I have to login twice when I boot up (first with my old pass, then with the new one).Is there any way to change the disk encryption password so I can be in sync with my login password?I tried Disk Util > File > Change Password, but it is greyed out.
Info: MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)
