[Tips and Tricks] Subject “retro” in OS X Mavericks

Tips and tricks

OS X Mavericks

Older versions of OS X (then still with the prefix Mac – Mac OS X) design different windows: they were a little lighter and more rounded. But over time, the design of windows, as it does most of the interface OS X, has become more strict and made in darker colors. But if you go back in time still want to again see the light of the windows, transparent Dock and a few small changes, you can use our favorite “Terminal.” Ready to go back in time?

By the way, the advice applies not only to OS X Mavericks , but also to all versions of OS X, ranging from Snow Leopard (Interestingly, some of our readers, he still installed?). Just want to thank you for this team our colleagues from, without ponostalgirovat would not have happened.

So, to include the topic in the “retro”, open “Terminal” and enter there the following command:

defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSUseLeopardWindowValues NO; killall Finder

It will look something like that. Of course, that fix is ​​not very noticeable, but still. The only strange “restriction”, if I may say so, is that the theme of “retro” is not visible on the active windows, it can be seen only on those windows that are “in the background.”


If you suddenly realize that everything old is better to stay in the past and want to return it as it was, use this command:

defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSUseLeopardWindowValues YES; killall Finder
