Stop icons from bouncing in OS X Dock

When applications first open or need to alert the user of some new update, the icons in the dock bounce. Very helpful when you are multitasking, but some users find it distracting. Use following command to stop the icons from bouncing.

defaults write no-bouncing -bool TRUE

To make the command take effect, you need to restart the Dock.

killall Dock

Revert to the default setting:

defaults write no-bouncing -bool FALSE

Restart the dock

  1. This is perfect, I can’t stand all of those little icons happily bouncing around down there. Very unprofessional….

  2. I just thought a little humor would do the technical community a little good. Maybe it could do you some good….

    • Also, you said “This is perfect” which I’m sure will encourage the author. @JackTheMan stop being a dick
