Quickly Showing a Hidden OS X Dock
A friend of mine for years has been searching for a way to instantly show his auto-hidden dock, with zero delay. Until he recently discovered the trick to removing the delay and shared it with me I could not understand why he cared so much.
How to do it
To remove the delay from your hidden OS X dock, enter the following on the command line:
defaults write com.apple.Dock autohide-delay -float 0 && killall Dock
To undo the change and go back to the default auto-hide option with the slight
delay, you can just use
defaults delete like so:
defaults delete com.apple.Dock autohide-delay && killall Dock
I thought it was pretty useless until I tried it myself. It makes a huge difference. The only down side to it is having the dock show up when I occasionally bump into the screen edge by accident, which isn’t very often at all.
