Resetting Keychain Login Password

If you've ever lost your OSX password and had the admin reset it, or had to start from the DVD to reset your password, you'll know that you also lose the Keychain Login Password. So every time you try to do something thats requires a password, or something saved, you get asked for your keychain password.

Rather tedious.

This is how to reset it:
  1. Go to Applications > utilities > Keychain Access
  2. From the Edit menu, choose Keychain List
  3. Delete the "login" keychain.
Job done!
