    and it should be the 3rd .plist

    Hope you find yours there

    Can't find “com.apple.Boot.plist”
    would be a much better title. Then you can say "Help, please!" in your post.

    What if everyone used such a generic title? Please be descriptive.

    You can identify your OS version. Then maybe others will have a valuable clue about how to help.

    thanx!
    My guess is that you're looking in the Library folder in your home directory. There are two Library folders - one in your home directory and one for the system. If you go to the system one (found at /Library or Your HD > Library), it's there. Perhaps the more important question is why are you looking for this file?
