Remove the Delay For the Dock To Pop Up

I recently started hiding my Dock. I haven’t done that in over a decade, but I was ready for a change. But I’m not the most patient person in the world and waiting for the Dock to pop back up became a bit of a drag. So I looked around in com.apple.Dock and found an autohide-delay option. Setting that to -float 0 restored some sanity back into an already hectic enough world:

defaults write com.apple.Dock autohide-delay -float 0

Then restart the Dock:

killall Dock

When you kill the Dock, it’s gonna’ reopen all the stuff you might have minimized down there. Well, this was close, but then this turned out to make me much happier (turns out I’m not as impatient as I thought):

defaults write com.apple.dock autohide-time-modifier -float 0.1

Hope you find this useful! If not, to undo all of this:

defaults delete com.apple.dock autohide-delay
defaults delete com.apple.dock autohide-time-modifier
killall Dock
