Answered by Cody Janus

To access the advanced options for Users and Groups on your Mac, follow these steps:

1. Click on the Apple menu located at the top-left corner of your screen.

2. From the drop-down menu, select “System Preferences.” This will open the System Preferences window.

3. In the System Preferences window, you will see various icons representing different settings. Look for and click on the “Users & Groups” icon. It is represented by two people.

4. The Users & Groups window will now appear, displaying a list of user accounts on your Mac.

5. To access the advanced options, you may need to unlock the settings. If the lock icon in the bottom left corner of the window is locked, click on it and enter your administrator username and password when prompted. This will allow you to make changes to the settings.

6. Once the settings are unlocked, you can now access the advanced options by selecting a user account from the list on the left side of the window.

7. To make changes to the selected user account, click on the appropriate tab at the top of the window. For example, if you want to change the password for the user, click on the “Password” tab.

8. On the right side of the window, you will see the available options for the selected user account. You can modify settings such as the user’s password, picture, login items, parental controls, and more.

9. To make changes, simply click on the desired option and follow the prompts or select the appropriate settings.

10. Once you have made the desired changes, you can close the Users & Groups window.

It’s worth mentioning that accessing advanced options in Users & Groups requires administrator privileges. If you are not an administrator, you may need to contact the administrator or enter the administrator credentials to make changes to user settings.

The Users & Groups settings provide a range of options for managing user accounts on your Mac, allowing you to customize various aspects of user profiles to suit your needs.
