I'm launching Almighty - powerful configurations for macOS

Product Hunt


Hi, I'm thrilled to announce my next macOS app. Almighty is a convenient and easy to use macOS menu bar application that exposes powerful configurations for your mac. This simplifies tedious settings, and allows fantastic controls that we can only do through verbose Apple scripts or command lines

There are many features, and the list is growing

๐ŸŒ… Launch at login
๐Ÿ‘ป Show hidden files in Finder
๐Ÿ–ผ Save screenshots to Downloads folder (By default screenshots are saved in Desktop)
๐Ÿ›‘ Stop macOS release notification (Stop alert for installing new major release of macOS)
๐Ÿšซ Stop macOS software update notification
๐Ÿ™ˆ Minimize all windows (Reveal the desktop with all windows minimized)
๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™€๏ธ Stop iTunes (Stop iTunes from automatically opening)
๐Ÿ‘€ Toggle file extensions in Finder (By default, certain file extensions are hidden)
๐Ÿ‘ฎ Stop Photos (Stop Photos from automatically opening)
๐Ÿค  Show full path in Finder (Show full path in Finder title bar)
๐ŸŽƒ Hide desktop icons (Hide all desktop icons visibility)
๐ŸŒƒ Launch screensaver (Launch your default screensaver)
๐Ÿ– Clear clipboard (Clear all items in clipboard)
โ˜€๏ธ Keep macOS awake (Prevent macOS from going to sleep mode)
๐ŸŒ™ Do not disturb (Turn on 'do not disturb' mode when external screens are connected, this is to avoid unwanted notifications under presentation)
โŒจ๏ธ Lock keyboard (Disable built-in keyboard for cleaning. Screen and touchpad function as normal. For machines with HID driver keyboard, this can lock keyboard but can't unlock)

If you get warning about "damaged and canโ€™t be opened" when opening Almighty, you can disable GateKeeper by following

More features to come, any suggestions are more than welcome

Would be cool if people could write scripts to add even more options.
