View Full Version : question for a mac/aqua guru

December 29th, 2008, 10:41 PM
i know there are better places on the net to ask this, but since i hang-out here a lot...

there is a button in most cocoa apps that 'removes the crap' for lack of a better term... the button on the right in the window chrome. (ie: there is one in firefox and finder.)

my question: is there a 'defaults' bool i can change to make all cocoa apps launch in this mode by default?

Its up to the developer whether to implement the show/hide toolbar button. You'll notice some apps have it whilst others dont.

There is no global setting or preference that affects this, though perhaps you could use some applescript when launching apps?

EDIT: This might be a good start.... http://www.apple.com/applescript/firsttutorial/06.html
