How to control 'Extensions' pref pane in System Preferences

New Contributor III

Hi, My 10.10 is almost ready to be deployed to prod except that I am unable to hide Extensions Preferences inside System preferences. as I am unable to find the CFBundleIdentifier of this pref pane.
Currently it is greyed out because I have not added it in 'Enabled' nor 'Hidden' preferences array.
Any idea what is the Identifier for this?

All the OS default System Preference Panes live in the path of /System/Library/PreferencePanes/
Looking in there on a 10.10.2 Mac I see one labeled as Extensions.prefPane which is the one you're after. To get the Bundle Identifier, you need the following command from Terminal:

defaults read /System/Library/PreferencePanes/Extensions.prefPane/Contents/Info CFBundleIdentifier

That returns:

And you can replace the path above to any other Preference Pane to get its Bundle Identifier as well.

Hope that helps.
