Dock Stack for “Recent Applications”

This simple Terminal hack will create a custom Stack on the Dock that will show your recently opened applications. Just open Terminal.app (/Applications/Utilities/) and type in the following command:

defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-others -array-add '{ "tile-data" = { "list-type" = 1; }; "tile-type" = "recents-tile"; }'

Once you type in the command, you will need to restart the Dock by typing “killall Dock” and pressing enter. If you decide you don’t want the newly created Stack, just drag it off the Dock like any other Stack.
