I have saved a window arrangement in iTerm2 that I want to remove. I found this file: ~/Library/Preferences/com.googlecode.iterm2.plist but it isn't really editable.

How can I delete a window arrangement?

1 Answer 1


You don't need to edit the .plist file.

  1. Open up iTerm2.
  2. Select iTerm menu > Preferences…
  3. Select the Arrangements tab.
  4. Select an arrangement from the list.
  5. Use the - button to delete the arrangement (see the screen shot).
  6. Get a nice cup of tea and a biscuit.

Whomp that sucker!
