The Basics > All About the Dock

Chapter 8. All About the Dock

The Dock is that strip across the bottom of your screen that contains a number of icons. Apple has put those icons in the Dock for your use, but you can customize it endlessly, as explained on the following pages. You can add folders, applications, web sites, documents, windows, or just about anything else to the Dock—once an item is in the Dock, you just single-click to open it. You can delete items, rearrange items, move the Dock to the left or right of your screen, enlarge it, reduce it, hide it, and more.


This is the Dock. If you’re a Mac user from way back, you’ll discover that the Dock takes the place of the traditional Apple menu, the Application menu, and the Application Switcher.
