Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

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 and found an autohide-delay option. Setting that to -float 0 restored some sanity back into an already hectic enough world: defaults write 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 autohide-time-modifier -float 0.1 Hope you find this useful! If not, to undo all of this: defaults delete autohide-delay defaults delete autohide-time-modifier killall Dock
