Turn-off Leopards 3D Dock

Just noticed that if you place your dock on either side of the screen you get a flat dock, instead of that floating 3d look. As much as I like the 3D look, I liked the flat look even more, so after poking around I found out how to disable the 3D look. Open a Terminal window and type in the following two commands:
defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES
killall Dock

To get the 3D floating dock back you open a Terminal and type the “opposite” two commands:
defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean NO
killall Dock

Keep coming back…..there will be more soon :-)

  2. Hello Anonymous,

    Thank you, I’m glad you found something useful on my blog. Regarding donations, thanks, but I really don’t need it. I do this as a hobby (and part of my day-to-day work at the university). I would instead appreciate if you could recommend me to friends/family and help spread the word :-).

    BTW there are some more tips coming shortly….keep checking back :-).
