I have a benn using Macs since 1989. I have a bachelor's degree in Mathamaitcs and a Master's degree in Physics. Why can't I figure out how to get my desktop not to default to the basic cloth pattern?Screen Shot 2013-04-20 at 4.02.50 PM.png

    Do you mean the desktop, or the login screen? The login screen cannot be changed. The desktop background can be changed under System Preferences > Desktop & Screensaver. Or, if you have a photo you want to use, right click it and choose Set As Desktop Background.

    The login screen can indeed be changed, easily. The free utlity Onyx will accomplish this with a click of the mouse.

    1. I bumped the keyboard and fixed it. Where is that in the manual!

     

    2. Mathamaitcs is Mathematics on angry steroids! I actually took more History than math so that could be the issue. Actually it was ancient history (Greek and Roman stuff). I think they might of spelled it like I did.

    Page 114 section C2. I see that like most, you haven't read the manual!

    "might of spelled it" - wouldn't Greeks and Romans "have spelt it"?
