CLIX: defaults-write.com

A treasure trove dating back to July 2012.

Get It

Try It

ORANGE WALK TOWN (Rixstep) — https://www.defaults-write.com: bookmark it and come back to it often. This site is a treasure trove of esoteric settings for macOS dating from the present all the way back to version 10.7. (See the 'DFW-archive' feature in the LRHC of the main page.)

The commands revealed are exclusively 'Terminal' commands, but there's more: as each new command gets its own dedicated webpage, there's ample room for comments, which are often very useful.


As the 'defaults-write' commands are exclusively 'Terminal', they're also 'CLIX'. You can get the CLIX commands for 10.13 here, and you can get the free download for CLIX at the link at the bottom of the page, whereupon you'll acquire an additional 5.000+ useful commands.
