How can I update changes to the Login window (Mac OS X 10.11.3). When I change settings in the Preferences and then restart computer, there is absolutely no difference.

Is there a XML file with these settings or cache?

  • What kind of changes did you apply to the login window? – nohillside Mar 9 '16 at 14:51
  • Display login window as: Name and password... for example – Martin Trubelik Mar 9 '16 at 14:54

Try running this command in /Applications/Utilities/Terminal:

chmod -RN ~/Library/preferences

and then restart.
