Is it possible to change the delay on the full screen mode window toolbar in OS X Yosemite?

I'm thinking of something like this, but for the toolbar

defaults write com.apple.dock autohide-delay -float 5

I love using full screen mode, but I'm frequently accidentally triggering the toolbar which covers up whatever I'm trying to access at the top of the screen.

    From my search on the defaults domainsI've found nothing regarding the Menu/Tool bar. As explained here: apple.stackexchange.com/a/252515/79808

defaults write -g NSWindowResizeTime -float 0.001


defaults delete -g NSWindowResizeTime

to revert it. Taken from http://www.defaults-write.com/disable-full-screen-animation-of-os-x/.

  • Doesn't seem to have any effect for me. Is there somer reset that needs to happen after the command? May 24, 2017 at 18:54

    Isn't the question a different question - i.e. waiting 5 seconds before activating?
