Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

For many environments, securing OS X is basically trying to make the computer act more like an iOS device. Some of the easier tasks involve disabling access to certain apps, sandboxing and controlling access to certain features. One of the steps en route to building an iOS-esque environment in OS X is to disable that Go to Folder… option. To do so, set the ProhibitGoToFolder key as true in

defaults write ProhibitGoToFolder -bool true

Then reboot, or kill the Finder:

killall Finder

To undo, set the ProhibitGoToFolder as false:

defaults write ProhibitGoToFolder -bool false
