Tweaks for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

1. Missing ~/Library?

You can run this command from terminal

“chflags nohidden ~/Library”

2. Finder sidebar icon size?

You can go to System Preferences>General>Sidebar icon size

3. Launchpad have junk or duplicate entries?

Give this free app “launchpadcleaner” a try at “http://zoltanb.co.uk/launchpadcleaner/”

Or try this System Preference Pane at “http://chaosspace.de/launchpad-control/”

Option two is to do it from terminal and you can find the steps at “http://gnuu.org/2011/07/21/clearing-launchpad-and-other-osx-lion-tips/”

4. Changing the scrollbar

You can change the way the scrollbar works in System Preferences>General>Show Scroll Bars

5. Fixing your inverted mouse scrolling

If you have a normal mouse I am guessing you will not like the default scrolling in lion. Just go to System Preferences>Scroll & Zoom>Scroll direction: natural and disable this option

6. Missing key repeat for some applications?

You can follow the steps at this site “http://gnuu.org/2011/07/21/clearing-launchpad-and-other-osx-lion-tips/”
