Terminal Tuesday: Make the help window go behind other windows


If you have ever used the help menu in OS X, you probably know that it has a rather annoying feature of putting itself on top of all other windows. I find this rather annoying because if I’m looking for help in the app I’m using, I’m probably going to be using the steps that it provides in the program, but I can’t because the help window is blocking it. No worry however, with this simple Terminal command:

defaults write com.apple.helpviewer DevMode -bool true

That’s it! Now you can treat the help window just like any other window. If you want to reverse the steps, simply replace the “true” in the command with “false”.
