Here’s something for our Mac OS X users! Well, are you a person who prefer a minimalist Mac OS X desktop and Dock? Then, don’t worry, you are at the right track! Yes, in order to solve the above issue, you can set the Dock to only display currently active apps. Here’s presenting you how to set the Dock to only display currently active apps using the command lines below.

Show only current active apps in Mac OS X Dock

First, launch the Mac OS X Terminal and type the following command;

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

Now, you’ll have to kill the Dock for the changes to be affected;

killall Dock

Then, again, if you want to revert back to the default Dock behavior, use the following command;

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

After that, as usual, you have to kill the Dock in order to take effect the changes;

killall Dock

NOTE : Well, if you go for this tip and don’t like it, then, you won’t lose your previous Dock icons or arrangement, simply use the “FALSE” command and everything will be back as normal.
