How to show currently active apps in Mac OS X Dock

Creativity | 2011.04.29 00:11 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

Here’s a great trick if you prefer a minimalist Mac OS X desktop and Dock: set the Dock to only display currently active apps. Launch the Terminal and enter the following command:

defaults write com.apple.dock static-only -bool TRUE

Now you have to kill the Dock for changes to take effect:

killall Dock

If you use the Dock as an app launcher, this probably won’t be that useful for you. I almost always use Spotlight to launch apps and have my Dock automatically hide, so I’m going to try this out for a while and see how well it works in my day to day workflow.

If you want to revert back to the default Dock behavior, use this command:

defaults write com.apple.dock static-only -bool FALSE

Don’t forget to kill the Dock again for the changes to take effect.

killall Dock

Note: if you try out this tip and don’t like it, you won’t lose your previous Dock icons or arrangement, just use the FALSE command and everything will be back to normal.

You can hide the sidebar from Mac Finder windows by hitting Command+Option+S, this command keeps the window toolbar buttons intact across making it different than than clicking on the grey pill-button.

If you’re not a fan of keyboard shortcuts, you can also select this option manually through the View menu and choosing “Hide Sidebar.” This change will affect all Mac OS X windows.
