Finally! HiDock app lets you set Mac Dock settings on a per-display basis


If you’ve ever wanted different dock settings for different displays, then here the app for you. It’s called HiDock, and it’s a very simple little app that does an epic job at something that’s been a bugbear for quite some time. In essence, it changes the properties of a Mac’s app Dock depending on which display setup you have connected.

Say, for example, that when you’re working on your best MacBook that you want the Dock to hide itself, but when you’ve connected a bigger external display you want the Dock nice and big and unhidden. You’ve got more spare screen, after all. 

Traditionally that would require a quick trip to the settings menu every time you want it changed (or the Terminal app for something more permanent), but with HiDock, it’s all automatic.

HiDock runs in the background, and once you’ve finished the initial setup you can pretty much forget about it. It will let you dictate where you want the Dock, so on the left-hand side, right-hand side, or bottom, and whether you want it to hide. You can also choose how big you want the dock, from ‘tiny’ to ‘huge’. These settings are then automatically deployed whenever you connect to a bigger display or to a multiple-display setup.
