    On the newer MacBook this video won't work for you… will work all the way until you get to user and groups….when you hover over the username it does not give you that option… here is the answer for the people who can't do it….hover over and highlight your admin name….then with two fingers press down on the computer pad at the same time….this will show advanced options….then click on that and change your name.
