How to Hide Recent Apps from Dock in macOS Mojave

macOS Mojave has a default option to show recent apps in the dock of your Mac. If this sounds irritating, you can hide those recent apps from Dock in macOS Mojave.

Your macOS Mojave dock should not be cluttered with many apps. I know that you are a multi-tasker, and therefore, you are working on many programs. However, you can always hide recently opened apps from the dock if you are using macOS Mojave on your Mac.

The dock in macOS Mojave shows three recently opened apps, which are separated by a vertical white line. This option is enabled by default in your macOS Mojave. You need to disable or turn off these recent apps from System Preferences in your Mac.
