Remove a running application from the Dock and switcher
Authored by: jeanmichel on Dec 08, '07 05:44:35AM


So i've just done this for a few apps which i always run but never "us" plus they have ugly icons, so hiding them was a great idea.

The hint above works great.

to answer hamarkus's questions: (from 2005)

1: A restart of neither dock or app breaks this
2: to access the app just locate it in Apps folder and open from there- if it is already open it will just bring it's window to the front.

Perhaps also of note is, as i still believe this to be a useful hint.

This works great under Leopard 10.5

As does the above mentioned "lightswitch" which allows all sorts of customisation to your app switcher. including moving, scaling, density, and removal of apps. - notably though, not the dock, hence why i used this hint.

hope this helps someone who comes across this hint in the future. . .
