Stop Quicktime And Preview From Auto-Restoring What You Left Open

Mac: Auto-restore works great when you want to pick up where you left off, but how many times do you leave open a photo or video you actually want to see again when you re-open Preview or Quicktime? A couple of terminal commands can disable this annoying — and potentially embarrassing — feature.

Enter this into Terminal to fix Preview:

defaults write NSQuitAlwaysKeepsWindows -bool fals

And this one for Quicktime:

defaults write NSQuitAlwaysKeepsWindows -bool false

That's it! Just change false to true at the end of both statements to bring back auto-restore.
