How you can make changes take effect and update in the Preferences GUI immediately without having to reboot (unacceptable), log out (bad) or kill processes (last resort)? macOS 10.12
defaults write ~/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist com.apple.swipescrolldirection -bool NO sudo defaults write /var/db/locationd/Library/Preferences/ByHost/com.apple.locationd.plist LocationServicesEnabled -bool NO
- Restarting Finder updates swipe GUI, but not the swiping itself! How can this be done?
- Location services: Updates instantly now. (Must have been something wrong before.)
