If you want to customize the inner workings of your Mac OS X you have to use the terminal commands or download some third party software. If you want a simpler way to do it, check out MacUtil. It is a handy tool that makes it easy to customize your Mac from a simple menu.
MacUtil features four tabs – Dock, Finder, User Interface and Misc. The first tab, Dock, lets you customize Dock features. You can toggle your dock from 2D to 3D, add a stack for recent apps, change how the stack list view looks, change the size of the dock and other options.
The second tab lets you customize options for Finder. You can make it quittable like other apps or show a status bar that displays information. You can enable/disable animations in Finder or toggle searching current folder by default or disable the dialog asking for confirmation about opening an app and other settings.
The User Interface tab lets you change when you see scrollbars, disable/enable smooth scrolling, toggle saving to disk instead of to iCloud by default, disable animation when you open or close a window, disable floating help windows, change minimizing window effect etc. The last tab includes other miscellaneous options like disabling the Dashboard, changing format of screenshots and others.
If you really dig into the OS X settings you can find all of these options using the search function. However, most people are lazy and don’t bother looking to make a simple setting change. That what makes MacUtil so useful as it shows you all of the options and settings from a single simple menu.
