How do I get rid of these kinds of animations:

  • Switching spaces
  • Minimising windows
  • Entering Mission Control
  • Exiting Mission Control

in macOS Catalina 10.15?

    How is this question different than existing ones? apple.stackexchange.com/questions/253756 apple.stackexchange.com/questions/329536 (which all seem to be a grab bag of specific preference tweaks)
