Set Dock switching mode to 'hide others' by default
Authored by: Tim.Lance on Dec 29, '08 02:30:57PM

Is there some way to not have a Finder window appear? If there are none already open in Finder, using this hint has Finder creating a new window. My main use for using this hint would be to show a clear Desktop.

To get to a clear desktop, simply Option-click on any visible part of the desktop. (Yes, it is hard to Option-click on the non-visible parts! :) )

Sorry, make that Command-Option-click on a visible part of the desktop.

Nice. Now to figure out a way to get that done without using my other hand.
