I removed Mission control, mail client, launchpad and other items from my dock, and set natural scrolling off, as well as 'tap to click' Everytime I restart however, the items come back on the dock and the settings revert.


Try deleting these files:

  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist
  • ~/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist
  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.trackpad.plist

If that doesn't work, you could also try editing them directly with for example defaults write -g com.apple.swipescrolldirection -bool false.

  • Thank you. Turns out there was 2 conflicting users sharing UID or something, deleting one did the trick. – Siddhartha Jun 18 '13 at 17:14
