Get triangle dock indicators back in Leopard

Oct 30, 2007 - 1 Comment

If you’re a Mac OS X Leopard user, you might have noticed that the Dock no longer uses little triangles to emphasize what applications are open.

Instead, little subtle lights glow underneath open applications, which look nice but aren’t the most obvious.

Apparently I’m not the only one that was annoyed with the little glowing light app indicators of the Leopard dock, but SilverMac has a solution for us on how to restore the old triangle dock indicators.

If you feel so inclined, head on over to SilverMac to learn how to muck around with the Dock and get a Leopard dock with black triangles.

Customizing a Mac can be fun like this, but it does involve modifying system level stuff, so be sure you back up and know what you’re doing.
