    If my husband and I have two user accounts, how do we share a password with our mortgage account for example.

    Nanci: You would just both have the same ID and password stored in your own password managers. If you Control+click on a password in Safari you’ll see you can even share the password with someone via AirDrop to avoid having to type it.

    My spouse is using my Mac at times under my Admin Login account. She has saved files to the documents folder and desktop. If I create a seperate standard account for her, how do I move her files and folder out of the documents folder and the desktop.
    Thanks

    Danny: Use the Shared folder for that. Go to the computer level, then down to Users and then into Shared. You can put those files in a folder in there and then access them from the new account to move them over.
