NCutil Customizes OS X Notification Settings

Share

Mac: OS X doesn’t feature a ton of options for customizing the behavior of the Notification Center, but NCutil is a command line utility that lets you change all sorts of settings.

With NCutil, you can quickly change any apps basic notifications settings using a Terminal command. You can also dig into some deeper settings, including changing alert times, editing multiple alerts at once, remove Apple’s App Store specific notifications, and more. If you want a little more control over Notification Center, NCutil is worth a look.

cDock Customizes the Background and Color of Your Mac’s Dock

Apple doesn’t give you many options for customizing your dock from the System Preferences. Free app cDock lets you customize the colors and backgrounds to your heart’s content.

cDock lets you change just about anything on the Dock. It comes pre-installed with colored themes so your don’t leave your Mac with the transparent default (I like the light blue background myself). How-To Geek explains how to add a border around the dock and do a lot more—which is handy if you’re remote controlling another computer and not sure which dock you are using. Check out the link for all your customization options.
