Set default homepage – Safari OSX

21 Aug

If you change the defaults on in English.lproj, the settings will be migrated into new user accounts. At least it worked for me.

sudo defaults write /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj/Library/Preferences/ AlwaysRestoreSessionAtLaunch -bool false

sudo defaults write /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj/Library/Preferences/ NewWindowBehavior -integer 0

sudo defaults write /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj/Library/Preferences/ HomePage -string “”

I was copying the from my admin account to the “/System/Library/User Template/English.lproj/Library/Preferences”, and that didn’t work because the keys above were gone… already migrated to whatever secret location Apple has moved them to. Adding them manually into the plist appears to work.
