How can i delete a user account from my macbook osx

Hiya. So long as it's not the main (Administrator), account it's pretty straightforward:
Choose Apple menu > System Preferences and click Accounts.

1. Click the lock icon to unlock it, and type an administrator name and password.
2. Select the user account you want to delete, and then click the Delete (-) button.
3. Click OK to save the user's files on the computer, or click Delete Immediately to remove the user account and all the user's files. If you saved the user's files, they are stored in a disk image in the Deleted Users folder, in the Users folder. To see the saved files, double-click the disk image in the Deleted Users folder. To delete the user's files, drag the disk image to the Trash.

Hope this helps :)

Spelling in corect on my user name Incredimam

1. From an account with administrative privileges, go to Control Panel>User Accounts and create the new Standard user account named the way you want and at least one extra Administrator account. Call the latter "CompAdmin" or "Tech" or the like.
2. Log into the new Standard user account once so the profile files/folders are created and then log into CompAdmin.
3. Now go to Control Panel>System>Advanced>User Profiles>Settings
4. You will see where you can copy user accounts. Copy the old account to the new one from there. Use the Browse to select your new account (C:\Users\newaccount).
5. Log into the new correctly named account and make sure all your stuff is there and that it works the way you want. When you are satisfied, you can log out and into CompAdmin and delete the old user account from Control Panel>User Accounts.

I bought a Toshiba Equium laptop from a friend but am unable to delete all of his settings is there an easy way to do this or is it best to reset the whole thing, if so can you recommend where I can get...

If you are using Windows XP the best way to solve this problem is to create a new user (found under Control Panel - User Accounts) select Create a New Account (This should be under a name you are happy using) and make sure it is a computer administrator in the next screen.
Shut the computer down and restart, log on as the new user. You can now delete the old account by going back into User Accounts. This will remove all the old settings.
The procedure is very similar in Vista and Windows 7.

I want to know how to delete a standerd user account?

I you are using Windows, click "Start" then "Control Panel" then "User Accounts," then "Change an Account." Choose the account you wish to delete, then click "Delete Account" it will ask you if you want to keep the account's files, say yes only if you had something important on that account. NOTE:you can only delete accounts if you are a administrator.
If you are using a Mac, click "System Preferences" then "Accounts" then select the account you wish to delete and click the little minus sign at the bottom. NOTE: Like Windows, you can only delete accounts if you are an administrator.

Rename user folder

You cannot rename the user folder because it is a system folder.

You can go to user accounts in control panel and rename the user account from the 'old name' to new name'. Unfortunately this will be purely cosmetic, the account will still be seen by the system with 'old name'.

The only efficient solution is going into control panel/accounts and creating an new account with 'new name'. Then you transfer all data to 'new name' account and delete the old account.
