Recently, I have been playing around with editing System Preferences without GUI and using the defaults command. I have tried for example:
defaults write com.apple.dock autohide NO
Though that did not do anything. The preference was still checked in System Preferences, and the plist did not get edited when I opened it in Xcode. Even after relaunch of Finder and restart.
Am I using defaults properly? And if no, what is the proper use of it, when I am aiming to edit Preferences through terminal?
I am using OS X Mavericks (10.9.5)
