2. Click your account name.
3. Under Related Tasks, click Prevent a forgotten password.
4. Follow the directions in the Forgotten Password Wizard to create a

This week for our Mac user tip we want to tell you how to switch to a
different user account without logging out. Why, well after last week's
fiasco of Mac user tip, I just want to do something simple that doesn't
involve hard to pronounce words.
you have to do is turn on '''Fast User Switching''' in the '''Accounts
preference pane''', and then use the '''Fast User Switching''' menu in
the menu bar. See . . . nice and simple - with no big words.
