7/3/107:30 am MacMost Forum Question: Delete user preference files Gary is it okay to delete all my user preference files in my user preference folder. — Imacer Comments: 4 Responses to “Delete user preference files” Gary Rosenzweig 7/3/10 @ 7:31 am I wouldn’t do that. Some applications may have registration information stored there. Others may have trouble running as things are put there when you install. You’ll lose all your preferences for things like your browser, the Finder, etc. Is there some reason you want to do this? If so, what? Imacer 7/4/10 @ 12:24 am I was just going through my home folder and wanted to clean it up. Get reed of all unnecessary files. No other reason. Gary Rosenzweig 7/4/10 @ 7:45 am In that case I would leave the preferences folder alone. I would only delete a file there (or anywhere) if you knew exactly what it was, why you didn’t need it anymore, and how getting rid of it would affect things. Imacer 7/6/10 @ 8:00 pm Thanks, Gary for the tip. Comments Closed. View all Forum Questions Welcome to MacMostMacMost is brought to you ad-free thanks to its supporters!
