    Specs:
    Macbook Pro 17" 2.6GHz 4GB RAM
    Recent Apps/Docs/Favorites in Doc Tip
    This was on MacOXHints:

    Open Terminal and type in the following:

    defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-others -array-add '{ "tile-data" = { "list-type" = 1; }; "tile-type" = "recents-tile"; }'

    and then killall Dock

    The Dock will relaunch and you will have a directory in it, which by default shows your recent applications. You can right-click on it and choose Recent Docs/Favorites, etc... You can also run the above commands again to add yet another one to the doc. I have one for Recent Docs and one for Recent Apps.

    Do you have to change anything in that string to get the recent files and recent app or does the string remain the same?

    Sorry, I've been away. You don't need to change anything. After it's in your dock, you can right click and set it to one of these:

    Recent Docs, Recent Apps, Recent Servers, Favorite Volumes, Favorite Items.
