Mac: Reinstallation on clean High Sierra retaining my interface changes

Post by blackxacto » Wed Jun 06, 2018 6:06 pm

Apple has requested I clean install my High Sierra hard drive. I have a complete bootable backup, but I am suppose to install all data cleanly, NO MIGRATION. I made many interface changes to XnViewer MP so that the total screen was black plus only the name of the files beneath.

This took a lot of time to find where all the setting were.

Does anyone know if there is a cache or plist file that was created when I changed the XnViewer interface, so I can easily drag back to the clean installation, saving me some time? :shock:

Fantastic! Thanks for pointing to the invisible xnviewMP folder. It held all my old formatting data. Saved a ton of time. The interface is beautiful black. Appreciate you help as always.
