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 Yosemite :: Change FileVault Password To Match Login

Dec 8, 2014

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.
