Hello,

Great Forum.

New iMAC user.
Lots of really very basic questions, but am trying to learn.

Quick question, please:

Is there any way to totally eliminate the sign up password requirement when turning the pc
back on, and logging in each time ?

If so, how please. Sr. Citizen, so simple step by step would be most appreciated.

And, might as well also ask this:

On my W10 pc, it was possible (whenever it worked !) to go down easily into, e.g., a programs
specific Folder where it was stored, and see the sub-folders, and other items that comprised
the program. Any way to on the iMac ?

Thanks,
Bob

  1. Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu (), then click Users & Groups.
  2. Click the lock
    , then enter account password.
    If you aren't logged in as an administrator, you're asked to enter an administrator's name and password.
  3. Click Login Options.
  4. 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.

I am not 100% sure on this question, may be easier to answer if you extrapolate a little for example what is it that you specifically want to access or see about an App or what you wish to achieve by going into such locations?

Usually this info is quite important & has been put in out of the way locations for a purpose. For example the user Library folder is now hidden by default although it can be made temporarily visible.

These Library folders contain files necessary for the smooth running of your Mac this is why Apple decided to keep the average user out of them.
