    How to Reset Your Forgotten Mac OS X Password

    It happens to everyone at some point—you create a new password and don’t remember to save it somewhere, and then before you know it you’ve forgotten what it was. Here’s how to reset the password on your Mac OS X computer.

    If you’ve got a Windows PC and you want to reset your password, you can do so easily with the Ubuntu Live CD or the System Rescue CD in just a couple of minutes. Or you could always crack your password if you wanted.

    Luckily for us, OS X has some very simple tricks that can reset a forgotten password without going to a lot of trouble.

    Method One: Using the Install Disk

    The first method we will look at is the OS X Installation Disk, so grab yours and put it into the drive. Once you have booted off the disk you will need to choose your language, and then OS X will prepare the installation environment.

    How to Share Printers Between Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs on a Network

    Windows, Mac, and Linux can all get along together, sharing files with each other on a network. They can also share printers, allowing you to use a single wired printer for all the computers on your home network.

    This is only necessary if you have a wired printer connected directly to a computer, such as USB printer. Modern wireless printers connect to networks and share themselves, so you just have to connect to them.

    Share a Printer on Windows
    As with file sharing, you’ll need to visit the Network and Sharing Center in the Windows Control Panel, click Change advanced sharing settings, and enable “file and print sharing.” Macs and Linux PCs can’t connect to homegroups and use the more convenient sharing features built into modern versions of Windows, so you’ll have to set up printer sharing the old fashioned way.

    How to Play Windows PC Games on a Mac
    “PC gaming” has traditionally meant Windows gaming, but it doesn’t have to. More new games support Mac OS X than ever, and you can play any Windows game on your Mac.

    There are many ways you can play those Windows PC games on your Mac. After all, Macs have been standard Intel PCs that come with a different operating system preinstalled since 2006.

    Native Mac Gaming
    ike Linux, Mac OS X has gained more and more PC gaming support over the years. In the old days, you’d have to look elsewhere for Mac games. When the rare game was ported to Mac, you’d have to purchase the Mac-only version to run it on your Mac. These days, many of the games you already own probably have Mac versions available. Some game developers are more cross-platform than others — for example, all of Valve’s own games on Steam and Blizzard’s games on Battle.net support Mac.

    The big digital PC gaming storefronts all have Mac clients. You can install Steam, Origin, Battle.net, and the GOG.com Downloader on your Mac. If you’ve purchased a game and it already supports Mac, you should have access to the Mac version immediately. If you purchase the game for Mac, you should have access to the Windows version, too. Even games available outside of storefronts may offer Mac versions. For example, Minecraft supports Mac, too. Don’t underestimate the games available for Mac OS X itself.
