Don’t Want to See Photos.app? There’s a Command For That.
I have removed the original post as it may not have been a good idea after all. There is a comment thread below that discusses an alternative way to “hide” the app from view. Please read those if you're interested in hiding Photos.app from your system.
If you already followed the previously published “hide” instructions, please un-hide the app using the following steps:
- Launch Terminal. (It's in your Utilities folder)
cd /Applicationsand hit return. (This will move you to the Applications folder.)
lsand hit return. (This will list all the apps in the folder. Make sure Photos.app is there.)
sudo mv .Photos.app Photos.appand you guessed it… hit return
- Enter your admin password. You won't actually see what you type, just type and hit return.
Apologies for the confusion!
