Remove the Auto-Hide Dock Delay

When you have the auto-hide dock setting enabled there is a very short delay before the dock is hidden. This tweak can be used to remove the delay.


To implement this tweak:

  1. Start a new Terminal session (in Finder click Applications > Utilities > Terminal).

  2. To set this to Disabled, type (or copy and paste) the following command:

    defaults write com.apple.Dock autohide-delay -float 0
  3. To reset this setting to the default value, type (or copy and paste) the following command:

    defaults delete com.apple.Dock autohide-delay
  4. To activate this tweak immediately, type the following command, or wait until the next reboot:

    killall Dock
  5. Close the Terminal session by typing exit at the prompt.
