Quick command line trick to make your Leopard stacks look nice….

Home / Apple / Quick command line trick to make your Leopard stacks look nice….

Here is a quick command to make Leopard’s stacks behave nicer when you move your mouse across the icons. You can type these two commands in terminal to activate the feature:
defaults write com.apple.dock mouse-over-hilte-stack -boolean YES
killall Dock

or alternatively if you don’t like the look, type the following in terminal to reset it back:
defaults write com.apple.dock mouse-over-hilte-stack -boolean NO
killall Dock

    Hello Sir,

    I’m very very new to your site and the world of development… I am in need of your help.

    Could you possibly tell which header files are responsible for the implementation of the ” stacks ” on my Mac OS X dock??

    Much thanks!
