KnockOutDock is a simple script that sets the Dock's preferences to be as unobtrusive and miniscule as possible. You will not lose any features of Dashboard, Exposé, Program switching or Screensaver hot corner activation.

It has been created for people who:

  • dislike the dock and don't use it in their workflow
  • don't want to use the command line
  • don't want to lose Expose or Dashboard functionality
  • want to deploy a quick solution over a network
After running KnockOutDock, the Dock will be unobtrusive and miniscule. It will only reappear if you hover your mouse for a more...

Question: I'd like to try this, but in case I don't like it, how do I return my dock to normal?
