Hello, everyone. When clicking application icons in the Dock, the application launches. Well and good. But when you click on a folder in the Dock, what appears is a very attractive, transparent, rectangular display of the items in that folder. If not many items, the transparent display will show them all. If many items, the transparent display will show some of them, usually showing the first items in the folder by alphabetical sort. My question is about changing OS X's behavior regarding these transparent displays. Is there a way to control what goes into them--maybe causing them to show the most recent items? or electing to see the largest items? It seems to always sort alphabetically and show you the first items alphabetically. What about making the Mac stop this transparent display altogether? I mean, would it be possible to click on the Documents icon, and thereby cause the Documents window in a Finder window to appear? Many thanks in advance for your sage advice. I hope you find this question interesting.
