Disabling the Mac Dashboad

So Mac loads a dashboard by default so you can have access to widgets; while many use them, I am not a widget person and decided to turn mine off. Not only do I not have to deal with a dash and swiping to it anymore but I get a small boost in performance since I no longer have resources going to that part of my Mac. Want to turn yours off?

Open Terminal and run this command:

defaults write com.apple.dashboard mcx-disabled-boolean true

Restart your computer

To re-enable

Open Terminal and run this command:

defaults write com.apple.dashboard mcx-disabled-boolean false

Restart your computer
