Woohoo finally! Disabled annoying animation. Saves me 1/2 secs of productivity waste looking at useless animations.

ran across this tidbit in the HyperSpaces FAQ and I know I haven't seen it here before (and I'm quite the avid OSX Hints follower).

It has really sped up changing between Spaces workspaces for me (which I do probably over 100 times/day). Once you've seen the 'swoosh' animation a few hundred times, you don't really need to see it again. Please note the requirement of running 10.6.4 or later.

Here's how to disable the animation that occurs when switching between Spaces:

  • Open /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app.
  • Copy and paste the following into the terminal window and then press enter:
    defaults write com.apple.dock workspaces-swoosh-animation-off -bool YES && killall Dock
If you'd like to re-enable the animation, just do the following:
  • Open Terminal.
  • Copy and paste the following into the terminal window and then press enter:
    defaults delete com.apple.dock workspaces-swoosh-animation-off && killall Dock
The original reference is here.
