Geeky Tips and Tricks from your Mac

Are you one of those many Mac users who want to burrow features and settings on your Mac? Well, if you do, then this article best suit you. Here are some geeky tips and tricks that you will surely want to know straight from your Mac computer.

  • Recent items stack – Mac creators have found a way by creating a stack that will contain all your recent applications on your Mac. You can find this stack right on your Apple menu but it is more convenient for the user to have this stack right on their dock. To do this, simply copy the command below and past it into the Terminal. defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-others -array-add ‘{ “tile-data” = { “list-type” = 1; }; “tile-type” = “recents-tile”; }’ Type “killall Dock” so that it will relaunch your dock containing your new stack.
  • Stacks List View – if you want to have a nice looking list that has icons and scrollbar, you can do this by: copy the following snippet and paste it into the Terminal: defaults write com.apple.dock use-new-list-stack -bool YES; type “killall Dock” so that changes will take effect.
  • Resizing your Dock – If you want your dock to be smaller or bigger, you can resize it without going into your System Preferences. You can do this by clicking and dragging the little divider in your dock. You need to hold down so that you can achieve the right size for your dock.
  • Show hidden files – If you want that hidden files will be visible in the Finder, all you need to do is to use the terminal command: defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES. You need to set it back to “NO” if you want to rehide the files again.

These are just some of the geeky tips that can help you on your daily use on your Mac computer. Have a great fun on your Mac!
