Changing user login shells

Changing user login shells

In the Account Manager, select a user name, then select Modify from the Users menu. Use the Login Shell button to select from the available login shells.

To change the system default login shell, select User Defaults from the Options menu.

Each shell has one or more environment files specific to that shell (for example, .profile and .kshrc for ksh(C)). To add environment files to the home directory, select Add Shell Environment Files to Home Directory. (This button has no effect on a newly created home directory; environment files are always added in this case.)
