Turn Off Resume on a Per App Basis

Here are a few example defaults strings for individual applications, and then well show you how to find your own strings for other
Turn Off Resume for Safari

Turn Off for Google Chrome

Turn Off for QuickTime Player X

Turn Off for Preview

You will want to relaunch whatever application you have disabled the feature for in order for changes to take effect.
Disabling Resume for Other Applications
For disabling Resume with other applications, you will want access to your personal Library directory (remember that /Library and
~/Library are different) so that you can find the exact app name syntax. The folder you are looking for is:

I like the Go To Folder function since its easy to access with Command+Shift+G but you can get there through Option-Clicking on the
Go menu too.

Once you are in your personal librarys Saved Application State folder, what you are looking for is
com.developerName.ApplicationName.savedState, for another example well pick Terminal which is in this directory as

Remove All Applications from Launchpad

Method 2) Using the Terminal removes any application
Launch the Terminal and enter the following command, replacing APPNAME with the name of the application you want to
remove from Launchpad:

For example, removing TmpDisk would be:

Launchpad will automatically refresh, open it to see the changes.

Remove All Applications from Launchpad

Using the Terminal again, the entire Launchpad can be wiped free of all apps, giving you a fresh start. To do this, enter the
following command in the Terminal:

Note that there is no undoing this last change, if you use that command you will have to manually add all apps on your own

Discard the .savedState extension and enter the first part of the directory name into the same command used above, so it will look


Enter that into the command line and relaunch Terminal and Resume will no longer be activated for that app only. Just as the other
method, you can do this with as many or as few apps as you want.

Opening apps in fullscreen automatically

I'm wanting to make applications such as Chrome open in full screen automatically, I know it may seem like a small thing but it just makes
things a bit easier and quicker.
I have this AppleScript that I am running through an Automator app

if application "Google Chrome" is not running then

tell application "Google Chrome"
tell application "System Events"
delay 2
keystroke "f" using {shift down, command down}
end tell
end tell
end if

Click the "Spotlight" button, which is the magnifying glass in the upper-right corner, and type "applescript editor" (without quotation marks).

Paste the following into the AppleScript Document:
tell application "Google Chrome"

tell application "System Events"

key down {command}
key down {control}
keystroke "f"
key up {control}
key up {command}
end tell
end tell
