We Have two Users on a 2013 MacBook Pro: 'A' and 'B'. However, when User 'B' tries to log in to the App Store, the login prompt is already completed with User 'A' info. Is it possible to have two Users log in separately to the App Store on one laptop?

  • 2 users on 2 separate Mac accounts? I just tested, autocomplete does not carry between [Mac] user accounts, so I'm guessing they both use the same one. – Tetsujin May 27 '15 at 7:35
  • sign-in doesn't carry across either – Tetsujin May 27 '15 at 7:40

What you see as 'already completed with User A info' is the auto-complete feature. You can change user in the App Store following this:

  1. Open the App Store app
  2. MenuBar > Store > Sign Out...
  3. MenuBar > Store > Sign In...
  4. Delete info in Apple ID and Password fields
  5. Enter User 'B' info and press Sign in

  • If this is just an automatic completion at work here, what might step 2 do? – dan May 27 '15 at 7:29
  • @danielAzuelos I'm not sure I understand. User B is signing in (Step 5)?! – fsimkovic May 27 '15 at 7:31
  • That it! It appears User 'B' hadn't completed all the details required by the App Store and once that was done, it was possible to sign 'A' out and 'B' in. – ColWH May 27 '15 at 7:42
  • @ColWH Great to hear that it worked. Could you please accept my answer as correct? – fsimkovic May 27 '15 at 9:42
