    Hello,

    option clicking a dock icon should minimize all windows of the given program. It works with all icons in the dock except Finder - its window(s) won't minimize. Is this behaviour normal? If so, why? Btw, if I right click the Finder icon in the dock, the menu item "Hide" is greyed out.

    Thanks in advance for your answers

    Update:

    Option-clicking a dock icon doesn't hide the application windows if it's the only application running (not counting Finder). Why?

    Not so here. It's available while I'm in Safari, or if I switch to make Finder active.
