Hidden Mac OS X .prefPane We All Have!


Presentation edited Friday 28th July 2006 due to word-wrapping issue

Did you know the disk image mounting preference pane is on your Mac right now waiting to be installed?

Just go to this folder and double click to install!:


Alternatively, you can just make a link, no need for two copies of the one file:

ln -s /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DiskImages.framework/
Versions/A/Resources/DiskImages.prefPane ~/Library/PreferencePanes/

Done :)
