Don’t like Mac OS X 10.7 Lion’s annoying window zoom effect for new windows? Thanks to Tomas Franz, you can disable it. Open Terminal (Applications > Utilities > Terminal) and copy and paste the following line:
defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSAutomaticWindowAnimationsEnabled -bool NO
You then need to restart any apps that are running for them to get the new setting.
Hurrah! Snappy window performance again.
Also, if you want to restore CMD+D to being “don’t save” as it was in previous versions of OS X, you can do that with this command:
defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSSavePanelStandardDesktopShortcutOnly -bool YES
