DockView extends Mac OS X's Dock and shows window previews whenever you hover your mouse over an application or while using CMD+Tab. It helps you visualize the windows you currently have open and easily find the window you are looking for.


  • Live previews. The previews refresh constantly so you can keep an eye on windows without activating them.
  • Customizable. The previews can be any size you want and you can choose between six different styles.
  • Badge Dock Icons. DockView can badge Dock icons with the number of windows that each application has open.
  • Activate windows. Click anywhere on a preview to activate the window.
  • Close windows. You can use DockView to easily close windows.
  • Spaces. DockView can show the Space number to which a window belongs to.
  • No hacks. DockView doesn't modify the Dock or any system file.
