Hello! This is my first post and first time visit and it's nice to be here. I had a question in regards to the terminal and system preferences on the Mac. How do I change the system preferences options through the terminal on a Mac? Is this possible.

Thank you in advance
QUOTE Thanks

Sure it's possible, but you'll have to do some digging for where these items are stored within the preferences structure (some are at a base level so.. /Library and others are under ~/Library) Plus the commands, which I'd give you an example, but I'm not on a mac at the moment so I can't just take a quick look at some of my scripts.
