Edit OS X Guest User account settings and persist them

  • Login as guest, edit the whatever preferences you want to persist.
  • Don't log out, go to admin user, execute:

sudo cp /Users/Guest/Library/Preferences/*.plist /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj/Library/Preferences/

  • That's it.
  • Why is this so difficult?
