Chapter 16. Managing System Services and... > Managing User Preferences

Managing User Preferences

Your preferences, located in ~/Library/Preferences are plist files, a form of XML file. In this section we will take a look at some sample plist files and learn ways to manage them. Listing 16.1 shows the Terminal.app preference file (located in ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Terminal.plist) from an installed, but little-used user account.
