Turn tabbed preference panes into individual panes
Authored by: carho219 on Apr 15, '04 01:01:59PM
To change the category of a SystemPref you need to know the CFBundleIdentifier for the pref you want to move and add it to the group of your choice in the NSPrefPaneGroups.plist in /Applications/System Preferences.app/Contents/Resources/. To get the CFBundleIdentifier you can cat the file Info.plist file of the pref you want and look for the fourth string tag.

I give no guarantes that this will work. Atleast it worked for me.

Remember to make a backup-copy of the NSPrefPaneGroups.plist before you edit it!!

Sorry... It isn't always the fourth string tag. /Carl
