    10.6: Make List view Stacks work like Grid view Stacks

    This will make the List view behave like the Grid view, only with all items arranged in one vertical list, with names to the right.

    Open a Terminal Window and enter the following:

    $ defaults write com.apple.dock use-new-list-stack -bool YES
    $ killall Dock


    (Change YES to NO to turn off. Kill the Dock for changes to kick in.)

    Hit Command+ (command plus) to zoom in on the view.

    Enjoy.

    Ha! Freaking awesome.

    Although a bug report is due for me. Go down a level in a folder and watch the box draw fill too much vertical space.

    Seems ok for me . . . hmmm . . .

    Notice the "twirl" effect when you drill down and back up from folders? ;)

    Remember: Command+ and Command- to zoom in and out. This helps with space for icons+text.

    Odd, I don't really get the twirl effect, only for big lists.

    I made a screen recording to see what I mean by my bug (actually stretching). The video is stuffed up for some reason, I shared it from Quicktime X. Better to watch in HD.

    And: any idea how to reverse the order for special stacks like the recent items? A list view with the recent application at the top is kinda stupid.

    Before I try this out, how can I revert the setting to normal if I don't like it?

    Change the 'YES' to a 'NO'
