Mac OS X Lion Tips – No. 4 Disabling the new Window Restore feature.

By Russell Harris.  

Now, most of the new Lion features IMac OS X Lion love, but the one feature which can sometimes be inconvenient, is the new Window Restore feature. If you would like applications to NOT restore old open windows from your previous login session, this next Terminal command will specify which application to ignore this feature. I’ve used QuickTime in my example, but just replace the name “QuickTimePlayerX” in the command below with your preferred application:

defaults write com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX NSQuitAlwaysKeepsWindows -bool false

I hope these little tips come in handy and maybe i’ll see you soon on a Training course. :)
