I'm not familiar with how the Keychain thing works, so I created a "Test Keychain" just to see it.
For the most part, you shouldn't have to manually create a keychain. They are automatically created for you when you enter a password (for your email, on a website, etc).
I saved it to my Desktop, but it appears in the Keychain list in Keychain Access.
You've created a whole keychain, not an individual item, which I think was what you were going for.
However, when I select the Test and click on "File", the Delete function is grayed out, and it says "Delete Keychain System Roots".
What's wrong---why won't it let me delete the Test Keychain?
I'm stumped...could you list the exact steps you tried? For me, I pressed File > New Keychain. I was prompted for a name and a location in a save sheet. I had to enter a password (twice) to secure the keychain, and then it appeared in the left under "Keychains". When I go to File, the Delete option is marked as Delete Keychain "Test". I get a confirmation prompt, and then it deletes.
What did you try to do?
OK I tried it again, only this time I highlighted "Login" first---clicked on File, got the Delete for Login, then highlighted Test Keychain again, and then File again-----then it worked----I got the Delete for the Test Keychain. It's gone now. I can't figure out why it wouldn't do it before.
Thanks for the help.
