IMac :: How To Change Login Text

Jul 26, 2010

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)


OS X :: User Created Text On Login Screen

Dec 26, 2008

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.

Jun 30, 2009

The stock 1920x1200 resolution is really amazing except it makes it extremely hard to read anything due to the very very small text size.

Is there anyway to keep the 1920 x 1200 resoltuion while increasing the size of icons/text?

I know you can do this in Windows 7, but does leopard have an option?

OS X :: Snow Leopard Login Wallpaper Stuck In Leopard's Aurora - CANT CHANGE

Dec 25, 2009

I don't know about you, but Snow Leopard's aurora is so much cooler. I used a program called "Desktop 2 Login" to change the default wallpaper for the login screen to a different wallpaper. Using this same program I changed it back to L's Aurora. (Still in 10.5). When I upgraded to snow leopard, the login wallpaper did not change. It is still stuck on L's aurora. I have used about every method besides Terminal, and it won't change.

Mar 10, 2009

Does anyone feel like the default text size in all applications is too small when your imac is set at it's best resolution?? I really hate to compromise some of the display quality by decreasing the resolution, but everything seems so small!!! I really hoped on a nice big screen i could look at things larger than I could on my laptop!! Is there anything I can do about this? I am new to Mac, so maybe I am just missing something.
