Disable Natural Scrolling With a Script

I guess it’s a sign of my age. But I can’t stand that whole natural scrolling thing. So I disable it as a part of my imaging process. To do so, set the com.apple.swipescrolldirection global domain to false using defaults, as follows: defaults write NSGlobalDomain com.apple.swipescrolldirection -bool false To set it back: defaults write NSGlobalDomain com.apple.swipescrolldirection -bool true

  1. Charles, While the value changes (“1” = true, “0” = false), then pref pane state doesnt change, nor does the mouse behavior. Likely need to reload the NSGlobalDomain/GlobalPreferences.plist file ?

    1. Is there anyway to reload NSGlobalDomain/GlobalPreferences.plist file with command line?
