Preferences

Question

Where the heck are the preferences? Toast 15.1 just started quitting unexpectedly every time I try to open it. I want to trash the preferences, but cannot find them!

Found the answer. In the Finder, click the Go command at the top of the screen, then Go to Folder. Type "~/Library/Preferences". This will give a list of the preference files in the hidden Library folder in the home folder. Trash the file com.roxio.toast.plist. After doing this, Toast is no longer crashing for me.

Ever since Lion (10.7) Apple did't think users could handle the responsibility of not trashing important files, and thought they needed to hide the user Library folder. But of course you may need access when troubleshooting.

 

Instead of jumping through hoops each time you need access to this folder, you may want to permanently unhide the user Library. This is a reversible process; the folder will remain un-hidden until you run the second Terminal command.

Open Terminal.app. Type

chflags nohidden ~/Library/

Press Enter on your keyboard to submit the entry.

 

To hide this folder again enter the following command in Terminal:

chflags hidden ~/Library/

Also, since 10.9 or 10.10 Apple in their infinite wisdom started caching Prefs, which now means just trashing the file isn't good enough anymore. You'll have to restart as well.
