I want to know IF and HOW to change the login screen name of the Guest User account. i want the Guest User account to show "Physics Student" at the login screen.
I am running 10.7.5 on 2010 iMacs
I am setting up a computer lab for my school.
for years now, i have been trying to lock down most OS X features such that the students can't change vital settings and thus causing issues for the students who come in later that day.
I have used the Simple Finder with Parental Controls and it has worked OK
However, i have found that by using the Guest User account w/ the Simple Finder and Parental Controls will give me the desired protection that i want.
Today, i have figured out how to customize the Guest User account with particular System Settings and App settings such that when you logout and log back in you get a clean start w/ my specific system settings.(background, application list, application toolbar settings, etc)
To that, I also figured out how to change the login screen image of the Guest User to anything i want (it was a simple change)
Unfortunately, to complete my customization of my Guest User account, i would like to rename the accounts login name (not the official OSs' account name)
Does anyone know how to do this?
please and thank you
