Create a Recent Items Stack in the Dock

If you want a stack in the Dock with the most recently accessed files or apps, open Terminal and type the following command:

defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-others -array-add '{ "title-data" = { "list-type" = 1; }; "title-type" = recents-tile"; }'

The restart the Dock with:

killall Dock

When the Dock reappears, you will see a stack with the recent items besides the Trash. You can change which items to show such as applications, documents, servers, etc... by right-click on the stack and select the desired items to show.
