My Coding Environment Setups - MacOS



Appearance: Dark
Show scroll bars: Always
Click in the scroll bar to: Jump to the spot that’s clicked

I always love the Dark theme. As for the scroll bar settings, it is nice to hide them, but it makes it much harder to locate and click on the scroll bar.


Point & Click
Tap to click: On
Click: Light

I try to spend less effort for any operations.

More Gestures
Swipe between pages: Off

To disable this feature is that I need to scroll horizontally when browsing the magnified contents. I do not want to get to the previous page accidentally.


Display -> Pointer
Pointer size: Medium

I would like to locate my pointer immediately.

Pointer Control -> Mouse & Trackpad -> Trackpad Options…
Enable dragging: three finger drag

As always, I don’t want to press down the trackpad :).


Sound Effects
Play sound on startup: Off
Play user interface sound effeects: Off

Please do not frighten a code in any circumstances.

Dock & Menu Bar

Position on screen: Left
Show recent applications in Dock: Off

I used to put the dock at the bottom of the screen, but now I am used to put it at the left.


Scaled: More Space

It is a good screen. Just display as more information as it could.

Mission Control

Automatically rearrange Spaces based on most recent use: Off

This will prevent system from rearranging different desktops that you have memorized in your mind.


Key Repeat: Fast
Delay Until Repeat: Short

Save one second a time.

Correct spelling automatically: Off
Capitalize words automatically: Off
Add period with double-space: Off

I know what I am typing. Thanks though.


I tend to disable as much shortcuts as possible. I admit that I have limited space in my head to memorize everything.
