Terminal Keeps Forgetting My Preferences In O SX

This is how I permanently stopped Terminal in OS X from forgetting my preferences. I changed the default for my user on my computer. And this is how simple it is.

Go to System Preferences > Accounts

Right click on your user and choose Advanced Options

Change 'Login shell:' from '/bin/bash' to '/bin/zsh'  ( i personally like zsh :) But change it to whatever you like.

Click "OK"


I hope I don't really need to say this but DO NOT change anything else. You could permanently damage your user account!
