Helpful Mac OSX Quick Tip

How do I remove an old outdated username from the username drop down list on Mac OS X?

It is an editor shortcut for “quick delete entire line”

It does not add/modify/delete names from the list of login names that are suggested for autofill.



Hitting CONTROL-SHIFT-DELETE while highlighting the item you want to remove will remove that item from the dropdown window as seen here:



The Ctrl+Shift+Delete keys worked for me!
