Mac OSX Lion - tidying up after install

So I went for it, and install Lion.

Need to do some fixup:


  1. Scrolling. Much discussed you either like it or not. I agree that scrolling down on your trackpad is opposite behaviour when your content scrolls up.... but...

    To change back from "scroll direction: natura", go to Preferences, TrackPad, Scroll & Zoom.


  2. I like to see the full path in finder windows. From the terminal type

    defaults write com.apple.finder _FXShowPosixPathInTitle -bool YES

    killall Finder
  3. I like to have a Quit item for the Finder

    defaults write com.apple.Finder QuitMenuItem 1

    killall Finder
  4. I like the status bar visible.

    View, Status Bar


  5. Scroll bars not aways visible

    Preferences, general set - scroll bars to 'always'
  6. Quicktime 7 missing

    Download from Apple and install. Its described as for Snow Leopard, and gets installed into /Applications/Utilities. Find a Quicktime movie, do 'Get Info' and change Open With to QT7.



  7. Cannot 'wiggle' the mouse / trackpad to wake up, bring out of screen saver, only press a key on the keyboard.

    Sorry. SooL
Thats it for now, more as I find them
