How can I disable the Top Sites on OS X ver 10.9.5? I have deleted the cache and locked Safari so that new windows images do not get saved.

I know how to Delete but need to know how to Disable the Top Sites in Safari.

  • As per your comment, I changed the Delete to Disable. If you think this is a error let me know.

In Finder paste following in the Go To Folder


Right click on the Webpage Previews Folder and select- Get Info

In Get info window select Locked.

From now on Safari will not save Top pages in that folder any more.

  • Thanks. I have done that but Top Sites still does its thing.

  • Did you restart Safari after locking the folder?
