Get your Mac back: Make Lion Dashboard translucent

1 August 2011 12,741 views No Comment

I use the Dashboard in OS X 10.7 daily — calculator, calendar, weather and, yeah, Trek news. However, when calculator gets the call, I often need to see numbers on a webpage or document, and OS X Lion’s Lego board Dashboard background is completely opaque — here’s how to make it go away.

There’s a lot of beauty in Apple’s $29 (purdy price) Mac OS X Lion, but Spaces implementation of the Dashboard is downright fugly.

Here’s how to make the Dashboard in OS X Lion translucent: 1.) Go to System Preferences > Mission Control, 2.) Deselect “Show Dashboard as a Space”
