    Re: How to create a user with less privileges in MAC other than being an Administrator?

    Yes, you can create different users as like Standard, Managed with parental controls which is best suited for kids, Sharing only, Group and so on. Now to do this you have to follow few important steps which as follows,

    STEP 1: Click on the system preferences icon in the dock -> In the pop-menu which appears Click on the Accounts option.

    STEP 2: If some option is hidden then you probably need to click on the lock icon at the bottom left corner and enter your administrator password to enable it. Once you have done you can add accounts, delete or modify the privileges of the account.

    STEP 3: Now to add account after Click the Accounts option Click on the + button below the list of account.

    STEP 4: In the New Account pop-up menu which appears -> Select an account type which you want.

    There are 5 different accounts which are Administrator account which is very similar to the administrator account type in Windows which will allow you to change the system settings, install software for your account and other accounts which also allows to create, modify delete other accounts respectively.

    The Standard account type will enable you to install the softwares for the same account and change related settings for your own account. The next account which is more suited for your need as of now is the Managed with parental controls where it restricts the usage of the computer by the user of account type in terms of the hours and usage of each and content regulations which more deals with E-Mail, Internet, chat etc.

    The other two accounts which you can create is the Sharing only type which is purely meant for remote users which cannot login to the computer normally at standard desktop and Group account will make you to specify privileges for set of accounts.
