Force the Dock to only show running applications

Of course there's always Command-Tab to invoke the Application Switcher which will always only show running applications.

Force the Dock to only show running applications

Oddly, my application switcher (CMD+TAB) stop showing me all the open applications recently. It usually only show 4 out of 6 or 7 running applications... Any clue?

Maybe it's 10.5.6 update...

One of the things mentioned (you not have caught it) was that, unlike the application switcher, the dock will always show applications in the same order. The application switcher shows them in the order that they were accessed, which is useful for switching back and forth between two programs, but not so good if you have to skim the screen for the program you want each time.
