Briefly Magnify Dock Icons

If you have your Dock set up like mine (small icons with magnification switched off) then you may have come across some situations where you would like the icons magnified briefly, for example, when I ARD into some machines with a larger screen size than the one I’m working on, the display is shrunk to fit on my screen, and as such, the icons may not be as distinguishable as you’d like.

So, to work around this without having to change the Preferences then just hold down SHIFT & CTRL and drag your mouse icon over the Dock, you will notice that the icons are now magnified to an acceptable size

just release SHIFT & CTRL and magnification switches off again
