Passwords revisited

 
 
Reply Sat 13 Jun, 2015 11:50 am
In an earlier posting I asked whether anyone knows how to get rid of the requirement for a password in Apple/Mac, it's exceedingly time consuming, especially if you should happen to inadvertently Shut Down. I don't have any books on the subject and I'm sure I could eventually find an answer Googling

And I've spent what seems like hours on the horn with my two sons, who are very adept at this sort of thing, but we were unable to succeed

So I was hoping if a newcomer might know off the top of his head....

Thanks fellas

@dalehileman,
Apparently, you haven't done the one thing that has repeatedly been recommended to you and that is to put in a call to your local Apple Computer Repair Store and either request a house call to service your computer at your home or an appointment time to haul your computer to their store to repair it for you.

If you had done that weeks ago, it would be repaired by now and you could be talking to your sons about the weather or your pool.

@dalehileman,
gheez.

Go to system preferences, click on security & privacy. Go to General there
and where it says " require password unclick the function and that's it.
The computer won't ask you for a password anymore when you log into
your computer.

@CalamityJane,
I think the problems on his computer are more complex than that, Calamity. And, Dale probably shouldn't be messing around with system preferences. That is probably what caused some of the problems in the first place.

By coincidence my sons and I have beer-tasting sessions in our jacuzzi

Jane thank you thank you thank you. Finally on the right track!!!!

However it still won't unlock, asking for "...administrator's name and password..."

Still immensely helpful, there should be more of you. Maybe one of my boys L or S or our software expert M will know how to proceed from here

Again many sincere thanks

In fact But, but Jane was very helpful: Just one more step is needed

So by chance do you know a way to get a listing of administrators. I suspect this won't be so very easy on account of security issues, but I have every hope my sons will know how to proceed in an instant

But But, thanks once more for all your support
