I think this application is redundant - Just open Activity Monitor, select Dock under Process Name and then click on Quit Process. This will reset the Dock.

I made a simple AppleScript that says: quit application "Dock" , saved as an application. It has been working well though three versions of OS X.

I think it would be better to download DashboardSwitch (http://braintrigger.com/software/DashboardSwitch/)-a small application which has two functions in one.

In Terminal:

sudo killall Dock

Type admin password, voilà. Of course, this is great for the majority of Mac users, who probably don't do UNIX.

Yep, or a *much* smaller AppleScript than this 9.6MB(!) app would do the trick.

Hi, I'm the author of the Application.
DockReset is only 92 KB, but I've some problem making dmg. But you can download the zip version at http://www.infoprog.eu/Applicazioni/DockReset.zip.
