Hi all,

I was wondering if there was a way to disable the rubber-banding effect in Finder, Firefox (and most other apps). I understand there's a terminal command but does this also work in Yosemite and if so, is there any way of having it so I don't need to enter the same command every time I restart my Macbook?

Many thanks in advance

I don't know if they have the feature you want but you could try looking at Onyx or Deeper by Titanium Software.

TinkerTool has an option for that. It's a fairly simple app that allows you to change these hidden preferences. I prefer it over Onyx and it doesn't require root access.

Open a terminal session and enter the following command to disable:
Code:
defaults write -g NSScrollViewRubberbanding -int 0
To reenable:
Code:
defaults delete -g NSScrollViewRubberbanding
