This page is #1 if one googles "hide dock icon mac", so I thought I'd give it an update.

In 10.4.10, one adds the following instead to the plist (after <dict>):


Remember to move the program temporarilty to another location and open it, in order to de-cache the plist.

Anyone got this working on Leopard? Seems all my hidden apps refuse to disappear any longer.

Good info, ebeans...

I just did this with DragThing v5.6, running under OS X 10.4.11.

It worked perfectly; no more DragThing icon in my dock.

...But now I'm laughing at myself.

I just noticed after editing the DragThing plist file, as ebeans suggested, that—while I no longer have the DragThing icon in my Dock—I do see its little menulet icon in my Main menu bar.

And I'm laughing even harder because upon further investigation I discovered I could've have done this by going into DragThing's preferences.

HEH! @ Me!
