    So I recently was giving a 2010 Mac Air 13" running OSX 10.8.2 from my Brother who won a new mac in an affiliate contest. I want to keep all the programs on this computer (Office, Photoshop, Camtaisa, etc) but switch it out of his name into mine.

    I read online that you must insert the original mac discs to make these changes. Is this true?

    I went to System Pref > Users & Groups > Created my own

    But when I go to Macintosh HD > Users > the home image still says his name.

    When I go to Get Info it doesn't allow me to change the name of it.

    I am pretty new to Mac's but if it is a simple modding process I could probably do it.

    Any help here?

    Thanks
