Maximizing Desktop Space: Auto-Hiding Recent Apps in MacOS Stage Manager

The MacOS Stage Manager provides an excellent way of multitasking and interacting with open apps on MacOS. The feature creates thumbnails of open apps on the left edge of the display, allowing users to easily return to the desired app. However, these thumbnails may occupy screen space, particularly on smaller displays such as the MacBook. This can be troublesome for users who prefer working with apps maximized to take up the entire screen. To resolve this, users can consider disabling the recent apps feature in Stage Manager. By doing so, the thumbnails will automatically hide, giving users access to the full screen. This method allows users to easily maximize windows while still having the ability to bring up the recent apps when needed. Users looking to make the most of their screen real estate will find this method beneficial for their multitasking needs.
