10.6: Minimize windows into apps' Dock icons
Authored by: ejtttje on Sep 02, '09 08:01:43PM

Option clicking dock icons hides apps. If you option-click to a background app, then the current app is hidden as it switches to the other app. (actually, this is true for any option-click application switch; i.e. if you option click on another app's window it'll hide the current app)
Alternatively, if you option-click the current app's own icon in the dock, it will also hide the app and just fall through to the next app as if you had pressed command-H.
Thus, in general to hide an app from the dock, click-option-click: the first click brings it to the front if it isn't already, the second hides it. Or just click-hold/right-click the icon and select "hide" from the menu...
