Resetting computer password


From today’s mailbag:

I just got a call from a woman in our condo building. She wants to know what to do if you cannot remember your password, I guess for logging on to her Mac. This is a reputable person so while I don’t know the circumstances of her not remembering her password I trust it’s on the up and up. What do you do in this circumstance ?

  1. I dealt with such a situation on Monday. As noted on the Apple web site, there are several options for resetting the user password.

    One that I used involved starting up a Mac using the OSX install DVD and running the Reset Password function from the Menu bar.
