    Is there any way I can lock the window layout in Mail? My Grandmother has a tendency to accidentally resize the panes and then she can't figure out why she can't see her messages. Then I have to resize the panes. She also keeps changing the sort order of the inbox too. She wants it to always to show the newest messages on top. Again I have go over and change the sort order back for her. If there was a way to run a script on the start up of the app or when the Mac wakes up I think this would be perfect. Her Mac is running 10.9.5.

    I don't know where those settings are kept but I'd imagine you could really wonk things up if you tried to do it.

    Perhaps you should have Teamviewer set up on her Mac so that you can get in anytime from your place.
