Mountain Tweaks Lets You Access Hidden Settings In OS X Mountain Lion

Since Apple unleashed Mountain Lion, we’ve been showing you tips and tricks for customizing the new OS down to the gritty details. A neat app called Lion Tweaks allows you to access a host of hidden settings in the previous version of OS X, and the developer has now updated the app for Mountain Lion.

“After the success with Lion Tweaks, helping houndreds of thousands of users in OS X Lion – Mountain Tweaks is set to do the same with Mountain Lion,” says Fredrik Wiker, the app’s developer. “The release focus on a user friendly user-interface, even more tweaks and the ability to do simple maintenance on your Mac – we think this makes it the best tweaking tool for Mac, ever!”

Only a few tweaks are Mountain Lion-specfic so far, but Wiker has said that he’s adding more in the future updates. Mountain Tweaks works on Lion as well.

Mountain Tweaks is available as a free download, but Wiker is asking for donations.

    SThey still haven’t brought back Spaces huh? I use spaces entirely too much to lose it.

    Seems mostly useless to me. Also, each one of these hacks is easy to look up and do yourself for free.

    Spaces is now part of Mission Control. Still there, use it every day.

    I can’t believe people are still whining about the loss of Spaces … Is it that hard to use Mission Control?

    not the same thing. I have my spaces set up in a way that makes sense to me. For instance I have six spaces and use them for dedicated things and each space is only at most two moves away using control + direction. Moving horizontally through mission control defeats the purpose.

    I’m sure you have something you wouldn’t want to lose that might seem trivial to someone else.
