Restore windows when quitting option missing

    In Lion, under Preferences > General, there used to be the option 'Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps'. This option seems to be missing in Mountain Lion.

    All my windows are restored on restart but I want to disable that. Is this possible in 10.8?

    Me too

    Yes - where has that option gone?:mad:

    It's now called "Close windows when quitting an application" and the meaning is reversed, i.e. check the option to not restore windows.

    Still doesn't work then

    Thanks steve - I had already done that, but it still seems not to work.:(

    Oh. It seems to be working for me, but I only tried Preview.

    It also doesn't work for me. Is there a script for a manual override? I've used that successfully under 10.7, but I can't find it anymore.
