Logging In & Using Your Spurgeon Server Account

Today you will begin using your very own Spurgeon server account!

All students are able to log in as:

Name: FirstNameLastName
Password: Student ID#

This will allow you to use your own personal account on the Spurgeon lab server

A personal server account means:
  • You are the only person who has access to this account.
  • You will be able to save your documents in your own documents folder.
  • You will be able to access your documents from any computer at Spurgeon.
Let's log in, look around, and explore your computer's "desktop."
  • Double click on the MacintoshHD hard drive to see your account. You will see your account on the left side of this window.
  • Click on your name.
  • Click on the Documents folder to find your documents.
  • Click on the Applications folder to find the computer programs.
When you open a folder or a file, you will see a "window" of this on your desktop. You can move this window by dragging its title bar at the top of the window. You are also able to close this window by clicking on the red button; minimize the window (hide it in the dock) by clicking on the yellow button; or re-size the window by clicking on the green button.
You are also able to see your Applications folder and Documents folder in the Dock at the bottom of the screen. Place your mouse over each folder icon and see what happens (you will see the name of the folder). This is called a "mouseover" and it allows you to find the name of a folder without opening it.
