Disable full screen animation of OS X.

You can view windows full screen in many applications, this means that the application window uses the entire screen. But the animation is slow and is too long. You can disable the animation with the following command. Launch Terminal and enter the following command.

defaults write -g NSWindowResizeTime -float 0.001

float 0 doesn’t work

This command also disable the animations for showing and hiding sheets, resizing preference windows and zooming windows.

Revert to the default setting:

defaults delete -g NSWindowResizeTime

  1. doesn’t seem to work on 10.9.5 – at least there’s not a huge difference to not applying the command, the animation is still there
