UNLOADING THE DOCK

If you have a few apps running and you like to keep things uncluttered and organized by minimizing document windows to the Dock, it doesn't take long before your Dock gets pretty crowded. If that's the case, here's a tip that might help you bring some welcome space and order back to your Dock: When you're switching from one application to the next, hold the Option key before you click on the new application's icon in the Dock. This hides all of the Dock icons for minimized windows from the application you just left, and helps unclutter the Dock. When you switch back to that application later, its minimized windows reappear in the Dock.
