    Hi

    For some time in dialog boxes I noticed focus rings around buttons. I haven't seen it before. I'm quite sure I did something that made this. Can somebody tell me where to turn this off?

    Thanks in advance!

    The focus rings are part of the Cocoa design standard -- they're supposed to be there.

    But, if you're seeing them in more places than you used to, one possibility is that you may get them on more things if you have full keyboard access turned on. You can turn it back off by going to:

    System Preferences -> Keyboard and Mouse -> Keyboard Shortcuts

    and clicking the "Text boxes and lists only" option at the bottom.

    It was the full keyboard access thing. I have no idea how I accidentally turned it on.

    Thank you very much!
