1 – Enable autohide

If you haven’t already, enable autohide. Navigate to System Preferences > Dock & Menu Bar and select the Automatically hide and show the Dock option.

2 – Open Terminal

Navigate to Applications > Utilities > Terminal.

3 – To make the dock hide and show instantly

Paste the following command and press enter:

defaults write com.apple.Dock autohide-delay -float 0.0001; killall Dock

defaults write com.apple.Dock autohide-delay -float 0; killall Dock

4 – To undo this and restore normal dock behavior

Paste the following command and press enter:

defaults delete com.apple.Dock autohide-delay; killall Dock
