Hello,

New iMac user:

There will be 3 users of pc, so have set up individual "Accounts"
for each.

Have also disabled the initial login password requirements for each.

What I would like to do, also, if possible, is to
totally eliminate any and all Passwords for anything.

In the Help Instructions, this bit of information appears:

  1. Click Login Options.
  2. Choose an account from from the “Automatic login” pop-up menu, then enter the password of that account.
The account is now set up to log in automatically when your Mac starts up. You might still be asked to log in manually
after logging out, switching back from another user account, or locking your screen.

Any way of getting around the: "You might still be asked to log in manually after logging out, switching back from another user account, or locking your screen" which does appear to be the case.

Really annoying, and inconvenient for the two other users of the account who are elderly.

Thanks,
Bob

Hello again,

There isn't any way to totally disable the passwords or password prompts, due to Apple's OS security. You could simply make the passwords easy to type.
