Disable Auto-Save in OS X Mountain Lion

If you want to disable the Auto-Save feature of OS X, it is now just a matter of checking a settings box in System Preferences.

  • Open “System Preferences” from the  Apple menu and click the “General” pane
  • Check the box next to “Ask to keep changes when closing documents”
  • Close out of System Preferences

Automatic saving is now turned off, you will be asked to save files manually each time you attempt to close a file or document that has been modified.
