how do I change my account name (short name) in mountain lion. I have tried the steps in kb/HT1428, but I cannot change my home folder name as described in step 4


For Mac OS X v10.5 or later

  1. Enable the root user.
  2. Log in as root.
  3. Navigate to the /Users folder.
  4. Select the Home folder with the short name you want to change, and rename it just like you would rename any folder. Keep in mind that the shortname must be all lowercase, with no spaces, and only contain letters.

when I navigate to my /Users folder and select my home folder name, it will not let me edit it.

Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion
