I dislike the big eye-candy icons that I see after clicking the Launchpad icon on the dock. However I like the menu that I see after a secondary click on Launchpad. How can I make the click/tap on the Launchpad behave like a secondary click?

  • Press the control key when clicking and it will show the context menu. – user3439894 Sep 29 '19 at 19:52
  • Tap with two fingers on the Launchpad icon in the Dock with Trackpad. Or right-click it with the mouse. – modlin Sep 29 '19 at 22:13
  • @user3439894 Yeah I can do that, but I just want to do with single tap. – vegabond Sep 30 '19 at 8:07

If what you want is a clean compact list of applications in your Dock, consider instead adding the /Applications folder to you Dock and setting it to "View as List".
