That's the standard Dock. Are you sure you have Snow Leopard?

That looks like the older 2d dock look - I don't know if this would work, and it's a use at your own risk, but here's a link that might help (refers to leopard, but might work in SL)

Change the 10.5 Leopard Dock from 3D to 2D - OS X Daily

My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)

Yes, it looks 2D.... There is a dashboard widget, called Dock Doctor, that can change it for you, but I prefer 3D.

Hope that helps.

Yea it's the 2D dock, I have that running right now in 10.5. I'm sure the command would still be the same in terminal.

Agreed the terminal command

"defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES; killall Dock"

Still works. And replace the YES with a NO to change back to 3D

I don't know why but I just don't like the 3D dock, I have always used the 2D. I guess I just like the darker background of it.

So the default is 2D now? Believe it or not, I actually liked the 3D dock.

No I'm pretty sure the default is still the 3D dock. I'm sure the reviewers at Engadget (link in original post) had changed it.

Just finished installing Snow Leopard. The default Dock is indeed 3D, exactly how it was in Leopard. What Engadget has is the 2D Dock, which I personally find to be very good looking in Snow Leopard. Yes, the Terminal command works in SL.

You know, you can change that background rather easily. It looks very slick in black and the dots show up better.


Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

The initial pic shows all open windows per F9 or laptop fn F9 which always dims the screen.
