User Account control option in MAC
  

Unlike in Windows Vista MAC also has a user account control option in it. It is a nice feature which blocks any unwanted users to access my applications. But how does the same works in MAC. Are they both similar or there is a difference. If yes then what. How to enable it and how it works.

The user control account, this is mostly kept by the person who is using the computer and if he is having the important files in to protect the file. The person who made the account his name will be at the top. And the other account such as the guest account will be below the administrator account. In the administrator account only the person who no the password can enter and in the guest account any body can enter in to it with out the password.

If you have to control the right to entry. You have to create the user account for those person who are going to use the Mac. Then you have to go to the file sharing pane. In this you can share the file, you can decide that to whom you are going to give what power to access in. If you have given the right of only read then the user can only read cannot not more than that.

The main thing in it is that you have to create the user account first. After you have created the account then you can arrange the permission in it. To give the permission you have to select the option permission and change it. Then you decide to whom you are not giving the right to enter. Then if you want to share the folder then you select the folder then edit the permission.

From the above reply you may be knowing about how we can use the account and how we can share the folder from it. We can also have the other option for the same. We can share the folder from the finder. First you select the folder and then press Cmd+i to Get Info. then go to the sharing and give the permission.

But in the Leopard you are directly able to enter in to the computer with the user account which you are using it recently on the Mac. If you want to enter with the help of different name and the password. Then you select the Disconnect to downgrade yourself to a Guest account and the enter to you own login.
