So this is an annoying one. After finally updating to iTerm2 version 3.0 one of the things that really annoyed me was a Profiles window that showed up each startup. I ignored this for about a year because it would only be an intermittent problem1.
I’ve been restarting this MacBook much more frequently these past few weeks so I finally took to google to find a solution. Turns out this one was pretty easy. There is a setting in the Preferences window that turns this feature off. All you need to do is:
- Go to
Preferences > General
[x] Open profiles window.
I’d restart after months, close it manually, then forget about for another few months until I restarted/the battery in the laptop died. ↩
