To log in as a user with administrator privileges:

  1. From the Apple menu, choose Log Out.
  2. Click Log Out when the system returns the message "Are you sure you want to quit all applications and log out now?"
  3. When the login screen appears, select a user with administrator privileges, type the appropriate password, and then press Return.

Note: If your computer is set to automatically log you in each time you start it, but you want to log in as another user, hold Shift when the Mac OS X Startup Screen appears and release it when the login screen appears. If you don't have access to an account with administrator privileges, contact your system administrator.
