Mac’s Mission Control is a brilliant view based window management system and this command will help you alter the speed at which the Mission Control animates when being triggered.
Mission Control is one feature without which I cannot imagine living. And the animations that comes while triggering the Mission Control are also neat and tidy. But did you know that you can actually change the speed of the animation that occurs while going into Mission Control?
Well, today, let’s take a look at how we could change the Mission Control’s animation speed on your Mac running Lion or Mountain Lion using these simple Terminal Command.
How to Change the Mission Control Animation Speed on Mac OS?
- Open Terminal from your Launchpad or Application Folder
- Now, just copy and paste the below command:
defaults write com.apple.dock expose-animation-duration -float 0.1 ; killall Dock
- And, that’s it. You are done. Now notice the change in the speed. Also, please read the Note below to know more about this simple command.
Note: The 0.1 in the terminal command is the speed at which the animation occurs. You can alter this to any number. Experiment with it. Incase you want to rollback to the factory settings, type the following command:
defaults delete com.apple.dock expose-animation-duration ; killall Dock
