Change Name or Names on Mac Login Screen


In System Preferences you can easily change the name that appears next to your login picture on the screen when you first start your Mac computer.

Follow these few steps:

First, go into System Preferences, and then under Accounts you will see the field to change Full Name, this will change name that appears in black text next to the user icon before you log on.

What about the name that appears in gray under Mac OS X that reads "Blank's MacBook" or "Blank's iMac"? There is also a way to change this, but it is less obvious than the other name change. Here is what to do:

Go to System Preferences and choose Sharing, once you are there, you will see the field called Computer Name, in this space you can simply replace the first part or all of the text depending on what you want to appear when your system turns on.
