Re-organize your Preference Panes on a Mac

Sort options

Did you know you could re-organize your preference panes in the System Preferences on a Mac? If you don’t like them grouped or organized by category, you can also organize them or sort them alphabetically. It’s easy – just open your System Preferences and go to the Menu Bar. From there select View. You’ll see two options:

  • Organize by Category
  • Organize Alphabetically

Just select how you want your preference panes to be sorted and the Mac will re-organize your preference panes for you. Bonus tip, if you select Customize under the View menu, you can hide preference panes too. :)
