How to use TinkerTool System 5 to set folder permissions in macOS
17 May 2017, 2:00 pm



A few weeks ago, I answered a reader question about “inherited permissions,” or how to deal with a shared folder that multiple people use via file serving on a regular Mac, not one running macOS Server.

Colin MacGregor wrote in with a piece of advice about an alternative. The app TinkerTool System, now in version 5, lets macOS users modify a million zillion settings (you think I’m exaggerating), as well as manually invoke maintenance operations and utilities that otherwise require intimate command-line knowledge.
