How To: Tweak OS X “Spaces”
Spaces is OSX’s cool virtual window program that allows “multiple” desktops to be setup. The thought is that it allows you to group programs together by task and thereby increasing your workflow productivity.
Apple has a great tutorial on how to really maximize it’s usefulness.
But some of us want to tweak it’s usability. For instance to disable the “teleport to another space feature” in terminal (as root)
defaults write com.apple.Dock workspaces-auto-swoosh -bool NO
To switch back:
defaults write com.apple.Dock workspaces-auto-swoosh -bool YES
To remove the animation between spaces:
defaults write com.apple.Dock workspaces-swoosh-animation-off -bool YES
Please comment and add any other tricks you have.
