Chapter 1. Mac Os X Annoyances > WHEN DRAGGED FOLDERS DISAPPEAR

WHEN DRAGGED FOLDERS DISAPPEAR

The Annoyance:

OK, smart guy. I tried to drag my Applications folder from the Finder's sidebar to the Dock-just as you suggested-now it's gone from both. What gives?

The Fix:

The folder may be gone from the sidebar, but it's still on your hard drive. When you drag a folder to the Dock, the Finder toolbar, or the Finder's sidebar in Mac OS X 10.3, you must drag it from the main part of a Finder window. That is, you cannot drag an item from the Dock to the Finder toolbar or from the sidebar to the Dock. The sidebar, Dock, and toolbar don't hold an actual file or folder, but merely an icon that represents it.
