    To turn in on
    defaults write com.apple.dock single-app -bool true
    Then
    killall Dock

    And to turn it off
    defaults delete com.apple.dock single-app
    Then
    killall Dock

    But it's best to read the whole article as it explains exactly what this is and what it can and can not do for you.

    Very cool find!

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
