D.87. Taskbar

Mac OS X doesn't have a taskbar, but it does have something very close: the Dock (Chapter 3). Open programs are indicated by a small black triangle beneath their icons on the Dock. If you hold down your cursor on one of these icons (or Control-click it, or right-click it), you'll get a pop-up list of the open windows in that program, exactly as in Windows XP.

Control-clicking a folder or disk icon on the Dock is even more useful. It produces a pop-up menu of everything inside that disk or folder—a terrific form of X-ray vision that has no equivalent in Windows.
