Hello, i recently purchased aused Macbook and I'd like to know if I can change the name on the "house" icon folder to reflect mine. The person I bought it from installed the OS and used his name, i was able to change the user name to my name but the little house inside the "users" folder still has his name assigned. Is there a way to change that name? I have a feeling there isn't but it's worth a try.
Here are the instructions from Apple on changing user short name or home directory name. I've used this on a couple of used MacBooks I've bought on eBay. And remember to go into System Preferences>Sharing and change the Computer Name in there. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1428
