All Of Snow Leopard's Hidden, Secret Settings Laid Bare

Illustration for article titled All Of Snow Leopards Hidden, Secret Settings Laid Bare

Screencap formats, secret dock animations, previously unseen menu shortcuts, login screen backgrounds: These are the hidden settings the Apple doesn't want you to see (or just forgot about) and that Secrets, a free, super-simple app, helpfully wrangles into one place.

The hidden tweaks are a mix of features that didn't quite make the final cut or were deemed too slight to deserve their own tick-box, and deep system changes that normally call for terrifying terminal commands. And they don't stop at Snow Leopard: Secrets, which has been around in one form or another for a while now, has collected a huge library of "gray" settings for other apps too, from Apple's various software suites to civilian apps like Skype and NetNewsWire. The app is free, and installs as a PrefPane. [Secrets via TUAW]
