    How to make the print dialogue always show the full printer settings:

    When you want to print something, you only get the basic print dialogue box but you need to click on Show Details to get to the full printer settings. Now I know it's only 1 click but if you print a lot you may wanna have the full details shown by default.

    To enable this, open up Terminal and copy/paste the following command then hit Enter:

    Code:
    defaults write -g PMPrintingExpandedStateForPrint -bool TRUE
    You need to reboot for the changes to take effect.

    If you decide that you wanna go back to the default basic print dialogue box window, then you can reverse this by copy/pasting the following command:

    Code:
    defaults write -g PMPrintingExpandedStateForPrint -bool FALSE
    You need to reboot for the changes to take effect.

    Basic print dialogue box:

    How to decrease the time it takes for the dock to pop up:

    If you wanna decrees the time it takes for the dock to pop up from the time you move your mouse cursor to the bottom of the screen, simply copy/paste this command in Terminal:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dock autohide-delay -float 0; killall Dock
    If you want, you can also disable the dock's animation for an even snappier experience (optional) using the following command:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dock autohide-time-modifier -float 0; killall Dock
