Edited by Grimm, Amanda, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to register your purchased copy of SwitchResX for your Mac running OS X Yosemite.
Move the mouse cursor to the bottom of the screen to bring up the dock.
Find the "System Preferences" icon, which looks like a gear, and click it.
Alternatively, click the black Apple logo in the top left of the screen.
Click "System Preferences...".
Find and click on "SwitchResX".
It looks like a bright blue computer monitor, and is at the bottom of our window in this demonstration. Clicking it will open up the "SwitchResX Preferences" window. Refer to our tutorial demonstrating how to install SwitchResX if it is not yet installed.
Alternatively, find the icon shaped like a monitor in the top menu bar and click on it.
Scroll down to the bottom and click "SwitchResX Preferences...".
This opens the same window, "SwitchResX Preferences".
In the left-hand menu, click "About SwitchResX" if it is not already selected.
Click "Enter serial number...".
Click in the field marked "User name" and enter the user name.
It is important to type this exactly as it appears in the confirmation email received upon purchasing the application.
Click in the field marked "Registration number" and enter in the registration number.
Make sure to do this exactly as it appears in the confirmation email as well.
When done, click "OK".
For this demonstration, our user name and registration number will not be visible, because they are private. We want to make sure that we respect the developer and their creation by not freely giving away this information.
This little window is thanking us for registering with SwitchResX.
Click in the "Password" field and type the password.
This little window is informing us that SwitchResX is going to make some changes. These are just administrative, but we need to give admin control if we have a password set up as we do.
Check the registration.
Underneath the title, version information, and copyright information near the top of this window, it will give the registration information. For our demonstration, ours has been "Registered to Stock Publishing, LLC". Now there are no more limitations to the program. We do not have a trial version. The purchase options have also gone away.
This concludes our tutorial on registering SwitchResX for your Mac running OS X Yosemite, or another version.
