Desktops Speciality level out of ten: 1. Dec 8, AM in response to ubnit5 In response to ubnit5 Personally I would stick with TinkerTool System because the developer takes great care to minimize or eliminate the sort of bugs that can kill your system. I have been using it since long ago and before OS X, and it's been a dependable tool.
The many other similar tools haven't such a good record.
However, I can say that Onyx, Cocktail, and some others get plenty of revisions - but that is one thing that worries me: the need. But it is strictly a cache cleaner, and that may be why it is such a reliable tool. Personally I prefer the one-trick pony that does what it does reliably and well. This allows to activate hidden features in the operating system and in some of the applications that come with the system. TinkerTool does not provide any features itself. Its single task is to give you an extended interface to your personal preference settings. The tool will never change anything in the operating system.
For this reason, the integrity of your system is not put at risk. All settings are restricted to the user accounts that launch TinkerTool. If you have multiple user accounts on your computer, settings of different users will not affect each other. The feature set of macOS varies greatly between different operating system versions.
For this reason, TinkerTool must automatically adapt to the system it is running on. The settings available in each system version are listed at the official web page. When you detect a preference setting that causes a compatibility problem with a third-party application, you can simply reset this or all preferences to their previous values.
There is no documentation other than this English FAQ list. Because TinkerTool doesn't provide any features, there is not much that could be documented. Versions of TinkerTool are not directly related to versions of macOS. TinkerTool uses unique technology to automatically adapt its user interface to the operating system version you are currently running. However, in order not to overload TinkerTool with dozens of styles for all the different generations of macOS and to be able to support the latest interface features of the OS, there are currently five different applications in the TinkerTool series, designed for five basic product generations of macOS:.
In most cases, the answer is no.
What's in this list?
TinkerTool does not provide any features, so it cannot add any. The features you are seeing are provided by macOS and controlled by Apple.

TinkerTool is only a helper application to activate them. However, if you know an additional built-in preference setting neither accessible in System Preferences nor in TinkerTool, suggestions are welcome. Note that we sometimes have to deny integration of a preference setting because the setting may have a negative effect on some applications which is the reason why Apple did not make access to this setting publicly available. No, this is never necessary. For many applications, it is sufficient to quit and relaunch the respective programs. In all other cases, it is sufficient to log out and log in for changes to take effect.
Yes, there is one specific interaction with the Finder where a missing animation for opening a Desktop icon may show an unusual result: When you drag a Finder tab to the Desktop, the Finder expects that it can always show an animation to convert the dragged miniature tab into a Finder window. If that animation is switched off, the icon for the miniature tab will just stay on the Desktop, behind the new window.
It will automatically disappear the next time the Finder is restarted. Yes, in up-to-date versions of macOS, you can hold down the option alt key while right-clicking the Finder icon in the Dock.
An item to restart the Finder will be displayed in the context menu. The Finder puts a. These files are used to save the positions of icons, the size of the respective Finder window, the window's background, and many more view options. While older versions of the Finder indeed displayed. No, this has never been a feature of TinkerTool and this would not be a good idea. Applications such as word processing or layout programs would become unusable if TinkerTool would somehow force them to replace given fonts with other fonts.
Applications designed in a user-friendly way won't request pre-specified fonts for controls in their user interface, they will ask macOS for the preferred default font settings for nine particular font categories instead. Instead, it will ask macOS to fetch the font the user is currently preferring for fixed-pitch use cases.
This can be any font of your choice, currently set for the category Fixed-pitch in TinkerTool. Yes and no. You can specify a larger font as your preferred default font for a certain usage category, as explained in the previous section. However, this might not be a good idea for certain applications, because you risk that texts will be clipped by surrounding elements, like boxes, buttons, etc. Parts of the user interface could become unreadable. The appropriate way to increase the size of fonts is to enlarge all parts of the user interface. This is possible by modifying the rendering resolution of the interface which is normally fixed at 72 pixels per inch.
Such changes cannot be controlled by simple user preferences. For this reason, this cannot be part of TinkerTool. If you don't use a Mac with a Retina screen, you might be able to control the overall screen scaling factor by our alternative application TinkerTool System 6.

Please see its official web page for more information. No, macOS does not allow this. Although it is possible to control shadows and similar options via the system's font panel, only font types and font sizes will actually be set. All other settings you can establish for fonts will be ignored. Preferred font sizes can be specified for all 8 font categories defined by Apple. The option to also set preferred typefaces, however, is not applicable to all font categories.
In the technical specifications of macOS, Apple only defines the two use categories Application Font and Fixed-pitch Font as being user-customizable. No, the menu-bar is a component taken over from the classic Mac OS. For this reason, macOS never contained a feature to specify preferences for the fonts used in menus.
As of macOS This includes the preference settings.
