This post is for anyone who has struggled to get rid of the Mountain Lion Mac software update notification.
All other notification badges have a ‘Cancel’ button, but software update only has ‘More Details’ and ‘Update’.
Sometimes I’ve left that notification sitting on my desktop for weeks. Sounds stupid, right?
Well, yes, it’s pretty stupid and more stupid that I didn’t figure there must be a way around this and today I found out by accident how to get rid of the message.
Just drag it to the right – off screen – and it disappears.
Now I feel like a chump, but if you’re reading this page, you’re likely to have been pulling your hair out over the same thing.
