Reset Any Account Password on Your Mac

I need to give a big thanks to Dave over at Ask Dave Taylor for having the quick and dirty instructions to perform this little task.

Just like Dave says, to reset your Mac account passwords, just put in your OS disk, choose Install Mac from the menu items and your Mac will restart.

Once you have choosen the language option, you will get a menu at the top of the screen. From here, you just choose the Utilities menu, Reset Password, and choose the accounts you need to reset from the drop down menu. Walla. . .it is really that simple. In fact, the harder trick here was getting the installation disk to eject from the Mac. . .gotta be smarter than the machine, and I have a long way to go unfortunately.

Ah well, good tip to keep handy.
