Dock all of an app's windows Desktop
If you hold down the Option (Alt) key while clicking the yellow 'minimize' button of a document window, all of that application's open document windows will minimize into the Dock, and each will have its own icon.

Holding down Shift and Option makes all of the app's windows dock, but very slowly. This is the demo slow genie effect for multiple windows.

Unfortunately, and this is a bug or an egregious oversight, when you hold down Option and click one of the app's minimized windows, all of the docked windows do not restore.

By the way, shouldn't the verb for minimizing be, not "to minimize," but "to dock"? Dock your window.... just a thought.

Dock all of an app's windows

I thought I once saw a tip here about how to undock all an app's docked windows, but I can't find it now, nor discover it through experiment.

This works in Safari, but not in other applications:

Just press the <OPTION> key as you click on one of the minimized windows, and all the Safari windows in the Dock will "undock."
