How To Delete A Mac User

Apple’s Mac computers have a very different operating system than Windows PCs. If you’re used to working on a Windows computer, there are a few things you should know about making the switch to a Mac. The first thing you’ll notice is that the Mac’s operating system, called macOS, looks and feels quite different than Windows. The layout of the menus and icons may take some getting used to, but once you do, you’ll find that macOS is actually quite intuitive and easy to use.

If you’re new to Macs, you should know that they use a different type of user account than Windows PCs. In fact, there are actually three different types of user accounts on a Mac: Administrator, Standard, and Guest.

Administrator accounts have full access to the system and can make changes or install software. Standard accounts can do most things, but they can’t make changes that could affect other users on the system. Guest accounts are limited accounts that are typically used by people who don’t have their own user account on the system.

Deleting a Mac User is a way to quickly and completely remove that user’s account, settings, and files from your Mac. When you delete a user, their home folder (the location where their files are stored) is also deleted. If you want to keep the user’s files, you can move them to another location before deleting the user.
