To make a stack in your dock that shows all recently used programs go into terminal and type the following: defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-others -array-add '{ "tile-data" = { "list-type" = 1; }; "tile-type" = "recents-tile"; }'

If it doesn't work straight away go into activity monitor and close the dock process.

Easy way to reset the dock and return it to the same way it was when new:
