Changing short name (Account name:) in SL
Authored by: wallsbk on Sep 28, '09 10:15:03AM
The way I'd recommend for Snow Leopard is the go to System Prefs > Accounts, right-click on the user account to change, and select Advanced Options.... Change the Account name: and reboot. I think that's all there is to it, though if you also want to change the Home directory name you have to change the Home directory: listing in the Advanced Options page, and the folder name in /Users.
